Below are examples of behaviour the Council regards as nuisance:
- Roaming and unattended animals.
- Pets fouling in communal areas and owners’ gardens that is not cleared up immediately.
- Pets fouling in neighbours’ gardens.
- Excessive noise.
- Too many animals within a household.
- Unpleasant pet smells.
- Aggressive animals.
Remember you are responsible for your pet and their behaviour at all times. If your pet is causing a problem to a neighbour the most helpful thing you can do is to try and see things from their point of view. How would you feel if you lived next door to a dog which barks all the time, or your children came in from playing in a communal area with dog excrement on their shoes? If a neighbour approaches you with a problem then try to sort it out amicably.
