Pennine Way dog poo problems persist!

Pennine Way, in Gunthorpe, has a footpath access to the John Clare Rec. Sadly, it also seems to have an ongoing issue with certain dog owners not cleaning up after themselves.


What Daren has to say:

I’m fully aware that 99% of local dog owners do clear up after themselves, and therefore I am hopeful that the recent problems relate to one or two people, who may be passing through the area.

I have now contacted one of the senior council officers and asked them if they can look to provide a solution or two.

  • To start with I would appreciate some of the temporary “clean up” spray messages along the footpath.
  • I also think a dog/general waste bin could be attached to the railing outside the footpath entrance.
  • Plus, the introduction of dog/waste bins at either end of Pennine Way, on the corner of the junctions of with Gunthorpe Road and Hallfields Lane.

What do YOU think?

One thought on “Pennine Way dog poo problems persist!

  • I walk my dog in Gunthorpe,Werrington and Walton there is dog mess every where, I have noticed especially in the winter months when the day light is short also the dog waste bins don’t get emptied very often with a mound of poo bags sitting beneath them.
    I would also like to raise the concern to the amount of litter that’s being dropped , Gunthorpe has never really had the problem until the last year ,is there anything that you might be able to do?

    Kind regards
