Grass and play area in front of Downfield homes

Reported via desktop in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 03:52, Thursday 18 February 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2553636.

The grass, children's park and lanes leading to and from are being used by dogs off lead pooing, the owners are ignoring it and consequently all the above areas are covered in poo. There are two bins located beside the green. The warden does attend to draw lines around the poo but the lines are not visible in the dark when unsuspecting people and children are finding poo on their shoes. The problem has definitely got worse since lockdown began and dog numbers have increased.
