A pilot to reduce dog mess in parks could extend to school spaces.
Plans to expand last year’s dog DNA trials in Mayesbrook and Barking Parks are afoot, Barking and Dagenham council leader Darren Rodwell said on Thursday.
The council are currently applying for Public Space Protection Orders to ensure dog owners cough up £30 for a DNA swab. Those found to fall foul of the order will have to pay £80.
Cllr Rodwell stressed that the scheme would come at no extra cost to the council.
