Next Council Meeting 
5th November 2019 - Puddletown
There have been several reports of dog fouling around Puddletown. The Parish Council understands that the majority of dog walkers are considerate and respectful, however some are not so thoughtful. Most concerning are reports of dog mess within the grounds of St Mary's Middle School. The health and safety of children and young people must be a priority and this simply cannot be allowed to continue. Please ensure that your dog is on the lead through the school grounds and that dog mess is bagged and disposed of appropriately. The council is seeking to have dog waste bins installed at key locations but in the meantime please take dog mess home. Incidents of dog fouling can be reported to Dorset Council using an online form on their website or by calling 01305 251010.
Puddletown Area Parish Council is looking to recruit more Councillors as well as at least one Flood Warden. Please click the links for details.
