CONCERNED residents in Penparcau have taken it upon themselves to put up posters urging dog owners to clear up after their pets following complaints that dog fouling is getting “out of control”.
The Cambrian News reported “People living in Heol Tyn-y-fron are at “the end of their tether” over the issue, Penparcau councillor Lloyd Edwards told the Cambrian News, adding that the situation had been “getting worse for some time”.
Local resident Tim Patient has erected a sign on a lamppost on the street in a bid to curb dog fouling, and Cllr Edwards said that more needs to be done.
“We need something to be done there,” he said. “Not only in Tyn-y-fron but also in Min-y-ddôl and the playing fields.
“Some owners are letting their dogs run wild. It’s only a few but it causes a lot of problems.”
Residents have called for anti dog-fouling posters to be put up, and are also calling for dog bins across Penparcau to alleviate the problem.
Aberystwyth Town Council representative for Penparcau, Cllr Charlie Kingsbury has raised the matter with the council.
“Hopefully we will see that something is able to be done,” Cllr Edwards added” here.
