New dog warden

A NEW dog warden will soon be patrolling the streets of Erewash.

Jane Metcalf will help to provide seven-day cover of the borough.

The appointment comes as the council prepares to ask residents for their views on the introduction of a Dog Control Order, approved by councillors earlier this month.

The order makes it an offence to fail to pick up after pets on all land open to the public in the borough and owners must keep dogs on leads in all public cemeteries and must not let them enter fenced or gated children’s play areas.
