Nothing seems to generate more letters to Focal Point and inflame opinions more than dog fouling! Hemblington Parish Council has two dog waste bins within its boundary. One at Pedham Green on Bonds Road and the other at the beginning of the footpath on Cuttons Corner. It has been pointed out to the Parish Council that dog bins in the area are often full to overflowing. The parish Council have looked into this and it seems that the most used bin is actually located at the crossroads near the noticeboard, which is actually within the boundary of Blofield Heath.
However, within Hemblington we have the opportunity to increase the number of dog waste bins, but would like local dog owners to comment if they feel an additional bin is necessary and if so, to suggest where they would consider another bin to be most appropriately placed. The existing dog bins are emptied weekly by Broadland District Council at no cost to the parish council. If an additional dog bin was provided £3.50 would be charged to the parish each week for emptying it.
If you have any suggestions regarding a suitable location, please contact the Hemblington parish clerk on 07838 832058 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
