Tasks and actions dealt with by Neighbourhood Wardens and Antisocial Behaviour Team in the Consett Area during April 2013.
Dog fouling is one of the major issues dealt with by neighbourhood wardens. We have investigated 18 reports of dog fouling and issued 1 fixed penalty notice for dog fouling. We have also removed 16 stray dogs.
Litter is another important issue. We investigated 10 reports of littering and issued 12 fixed penalty notices for littering.
73 incidents of fly tipping were reported during April. We carried out 10 investigations into these incidents in order to try and find any evidence to link the fly tipping to those who dumped it.
Untidy yards and gardens
8 first or second advisory letters and 2 litter clearing notices were issued to properties with untidy gardens or yards.
Wardens dealt with 6 reports of antisocial behaviour reported by members of the public, as well as 19 incidents which were passed via the Police Airwaves system.

Wardens have carried out mini dog fouling campaigns in Ebchester and Bridgehill areas. Various dog walkers were spoken to in both areas and there has been a noticeable reduction in the amount of fouling which is visible in the Bridgehill area.
Fly-Tipping – we carry out stop and search exercises, installing our covert CCTV and
