Sites suggested for free dog waste bags in Uckfield

A list of places has been drawn up where dispensing stations for free dog waste bags could be sited in Uckfield.

The suggestions from councillors will be considered by the environment and leisure committee on Monday.

All are on town council-owned land and include:

  • Victoria Pleasure Ground
  • New Barn Farm
  • Harlands Farm Football Pitch area
  • Ridgewood Recreation Ground
  • Snatts Road Cemetery
  • Luxford Field
  • West Park Recreation Ground
  • Hempstead Local Nature Reserve
  • Hempstead Meadow Local Nature Reserve

Councillors hope the initiative, which they began discussing a year ago, will reduce dog mess on council land.

A private company will provide the dispensers and biodegradable bags with costs funded by advertising on each dispensing station.

A mechanism will be in place to ensure a single dispense of each bag.
