youngsters have put pen to paper in a bid to get Leeds City Council to clamp down on irresponsible dog owners.
Pupils from Calverley Parkside Primary School handed letters to their local councillor voicing their concerns about the number of dog owners who fail to clean up after their pooches in Calverley Victoria Park.
Councillor Joe Marjoram has fought an ongoing campaign for greater penalties to be imposed for dog fouling.
He has recently sought agreement from the council that further consultation will take place around current Dog Control Orders.
Coun Marjoram (Cons, Calverley and Farsley) said: “Calverley Victoria is a small area of parkland that is heavily used by local schools, which do not have the benefit of their own sports pitches.
“Unfortunately, activities that should provide health benefits to children, such as football, create more of a health hazard because of the risks associated with dog faeces.
“Despite efforts to educate people, some irresponsible dog owners continue to break the law by failing to clean up. The time has now come to review the current Dog Control Orders.”
