The following is from the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council website

About dog fouling and penalties

Anyone walking a dog must pick up any fouling and dispose of it correctly. You should always carry bags to put the waste in, then you can either take it home to dispose of, use dog waste bins, or even a litter bin.


It is an offence to allow your dog to foul in any public place and not clean it up. The fine for this offence – Breach of Public Spaces Protection Order – is: £100 (reduction for early payment if paid within 14 days: £80) (S67 Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014).

The council can also issue a fine if a witness statement is provided by a member of the community. Reports must be passed to the Clean Neighbourhoods Team to investigate. In nearly all cases the witness will remain anonymous whilst action can be taken against the offenders.

It is not a defence to claim that you had nothing with you to clean up the mess.

The law does not apply to guide dogs for the blind.

As you may already be aware, Leicestershire County Council (LCC) have entered into an agreement with the developer of the former Nailstone Colliery Site, to deliver the highway improvement planning obligations associated with the planning permission to develop the site granted by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council.

The works funded by the developer, being delivered by LCC and starting on 30th September 2019, are as follows:

  1. The junction of B585 Victoria Road with C5112 Ellistown Terrace Road/B585 Station Road, which will be upgraded to a signal-controlled junction.
  1. The junction of B585 Station Road/C5112 Station Road with B585 Wood Road, which will be upgraded to a roundabout.
  1. Bagworth Road on the approach to Nailstone village, where a priority buildout will be constructed to help reduce vehicle speeds approaching Nailstone village from the east.

In order to facilitate these works, it will be necessary to use a combination of road closures and temporary traffic lights to ensure the safety of road users, the public and site operatives, with details published on a dedicated website (currently being prepared) following a press release:

Throughout the project we will work closely with our Contractor to keep the disruption to yourselves and other road users to an absolute minimum but would apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by our works.

If you have any questions about the works once they start on site, please contact James Quick on 0116 305 2263.

If you would like to know further information about the scheme, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Paul Radbun CILT | Assistant Engineer |Asset & Major Programmes | Environment & Transport Department
