Keep our Parish Tidy!

DROPPING LITTER IS A CRIME

We all need to take pride in the appearance of our Parish. People who drop litter or those who don’t clean up after their dogs have an adverse impact on the quality of life for their neighbours and on the entire community.

Publow with Pensford Parish Council works with Bath and North East Somerset Council and Avon & Somerset Police to report and investigate incidents of environmental crime in accordance with the Law. Offenders risk receiving fixed penalty notices, cautions, legal action, unlimited fines, or imprisonment.

CCTV may be in operation and all residents of the parish are requested to keep their eyes open and to report offences promptly to the appropriate authority.

LITTERING IS ANTI-SOCIAL

Litter is anything from a soft drink container, sweet paper or cigarette end to a whole bag of rubbish. The Parish Council provides litter bins in busy areas throughout the parish. If there is no nearby bin, or a bin is full; take your litter home. If the bin is full please report this without delay, using the contact details marked on the bin.

DOG FOULING IS ANTI-SOCIAL

The Parish Council provides dog poo bins in busy areas throughout the parish. Please use them or take the poo home with you. Owners are responsible for their own dogs. It is illegal to fail to pick up the mess after a dog, under your control, has fouled in a public place.
