Adrian Fitzgerald, Cornwall Council’s Dog Welfare and Enforcement Officer, will brief the panel on his role, seasonal restrictions for dogs on beaches and how the public and town and parish councils can help with the issue of dog fouling.

Senior representatives from CORMAC Operations will attend the meeting to discuss the cleaning of public toilets in the Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network area.

There will also be updates from parish, town and Cornwall councillors on local matters.

Cornwall Councillor Karen McHugh, Chair of Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network Panel, said: “Everyone is welcome to come along and find out what’s happening in the Wadebridge and Padstow area.  Tourism is a key part of the local economy, and issues such as dog fouling, waste collections for holiday homes and public toilet cleansing are very important locally.  You’ll also be able to learn more about how you can share your views on Cornwall Council’s budget, proposed changes to household recycling and rubbish collections and the current stage of the electoral boundary review.”
