Breaking News ! Dog owners who let their pets foul Sandwell’s streets and drinkers who booze in public face fines of up to £1,000 from March under borough-wide powers. Council chiefs meeting this week are expected to pass orders allowing for on the spot fines and the confiscation of alcohol in parks or private land open to the public. The move comes following complaints of drinkers urinating in public places and dog mess covered pavements. In a report to Sandwell ’s cabinet, council bosses say there is ‘considerable support” for public space protections orders (PSPOs) which will renew and replace existing regulations. A public consultation on banning alcohol showed: “Sixty four percent of respondents reported witnessing inappropriate behaviour linked to alcohol consumption in public places ranging from fights and scuffles to litter and areas being used as toilets, leading some to avoid areas of Sandwell altogether. “ Read More Related Articles Council tax rise in Sandwell 'too high' Read More Related Articles Battling scams and criminals during pandemic as 1,000+ complaints made in Sandwell 100 percent of people of those surveyed said they backed regulations making it an offence for owners not to clean up after their pets, saying: "Dog fouling creates mess and degrades the quality of the streets of Sandwell.
