DEVIZES Mayor Judy Rose is leading a campaign to combat dog fouling in the Waiblingen Way area of Devizes.

She wants the town council to work with Aster Housing to find ways to ensure owners clear up after their pets.

Cllr Rose has taken up the issue after being approached by people living in the road.

They are particularly worried about fouling in a children’s play area.

A report to the town council says: “There is one notice about dog fouling. There are no waste bins in the vicinity. This is a town-wide problem therefore the Council needs to decide if it wishes to invest in more strategically-placed bins and notices.
