Poll: New signs to tackle dog fouling issue at Crowley Park in Needham Market
A TOWN council has agreed to install new signs in a park to warn people about persistent dog fouling.
A football referee had previously threatened to cancel a match at Crowley Park in Needham Market, due to the problem.
At a Needham Market Town Council meeting last month it was discussed whether to install signs in Crowley Park to help combat the issue, as the previous signs had fallen into a state of disrepair.
The signs, which would be installed at all of the entrances to the park, would set out the uses of the facility that were allowed and further general rules.
Members of the public have raised questions over the condition of the park, why the park no longer shuts in the evening and why dog fouling is worse than in the past.
Also discussed was the possibility of employing somebody to man the facility if the council needed to go to the extent of banning dogs from entering the park.
As well as the signs, two dog waste bag dispensers have been bought by the council for the park.
