Issue Summary

Horse Fouling - Fiander Lane


Latest Update

28/02/2019 07:24:45 Dear Joanne, My colleague in the Highways Team has advised that there is no legal requirement for horse riders to remove any waste material deposited by their horse when using the public highway because, unlike dog waste for example, it is not harmful to humans. The general guidance is that if it is safe to do so the horse rider should dismount their steed and kick any waste material to side of the road/footway. Obviously they could choose to remove the waste material. However, if reported via the MyWiltshire app http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywiltshire-online-reporting our Streetscene Team the can remove such material from the public highway. However, Fiander Lane is not public highway and is not going to be adopted as such in the future (the only road in that new estate that will become public highways is Saunders Avenue). Fiander Lane will be maintained by a management company that residents of the road pay an annual service charge to. You could raise this matter with the management company to see if they could put measures in place to clean any waste material from the land that they manage. In terms of the Country Park then this is managed by Laverstock & Ford Parish Council so you could contact the parish clerk via parish-clerk@laverstock-ford.co.uk. I hope this information is useful. Kind regards, Marc Read
