Parish Dog Fouling Survey

Parish Dog Fouling Survey

Dog-fouling has long been an issue in the Bailiwick and this is certainly true of our Parish. Already Castel, St Peter Port and Forest parishes have been surveyed as has L’Ancresse Common

This year, your douzaine have decided to commission a similar parish study. This is part of an island-wide initiative supported by the Committee of Environment and Infrastructure, Clean Earth Trust, La Societe Guernesiase, National Trust of Guernsey and the Guernsey Farmers Association to determine the scale of the problem and identify any particular hot-spots.

The Parish is seeking six volunteer surveyors to assist with the survey. They will each be allocated a route which they will walk regularly – maybe daily or every other day – for between an hour and an hour and a half over a period of 30 days, recording instances of fouling on a mobile-phone App which has been tailored for St Peters parish.

There will be a comprehensive briefing at the beginning of the survey and technical support throughout the process. At the end of the exercise the results of the survey will be reported to the Douzaine and incorporated into the island-wide results.
