Very soon (early April) we are expecting the enforcement of by-laws concerning dogs in public areas will be in effect on Hackney Homes estates.
That is, fixed penalty notices of £80 can be issued to any dog owner over 16 years of age in charge of a dog not on a lead or who doesn't clean up after their dog.
This is something TRAs and residents have been asking for for some time and is coming in now, after a huge consultation exercise.
We have new signs already printed and ready to go up the moment we have confirmation enforcement officers are ready to go out on estates.
The new sign:
If you are in a Hackney Home TRA and want to use the sign above, you can do so. The estate name can easily be changed, as can colours if requested - this one was designed to colour coordinate with current Beecholme signage.
In the first instance contact your Estate Manager (or Sign Services) as you would for any EIB funded signage.
