The formal consultation period will begin on 10 July 2019 and last for 21 days. This will be the opportunity for people and organisations to submit formal objections.

Dog Fouling

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has a confidential Dog Warden Service. If you witness dog fouling please call 01482 396 301 to report it.

The service will need to know:

• a description of the dog
