In common with many pitches up and down the country Colinton Mains Park is often plagued by dog fouling.
We are determined to stamp this out and our Committee often contact the Councils' Environmental Wardens with a view to increasing patrols to catch the owners who are responsible for this anti-social, offensive and potentially harmful conduct ... but we need your help!
The Council has advised that their Environmental Wardens operate a complaints based Tracking System. This means that the more complaints they receive on a regular basis about a specific problem, the more attention it's given. If few complaints are made then there's the possibility the issue will drop off their radar.
Can we therefore ask all users of the pitches at Colinton Mains, be it a parent, player, coach or spectator, to contact the Council on every occasion they come across dog fouling on the pitches and surrounding areas. It would also help if you mention that your concern relates to footballing activities.
In the first instance please refer your complaints to:-
