Alderman Robinson
Given that only one dog fouling fine was issued as detailed within the Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful Cleaner neighbourhood report for 2019/20, can the Council state how one reported dog fouling fine fares against the numbers of reports from residents of dog fouling and against the numbers of residents providing names of suspected offenders.
Given the low rate of fines issued during that financial year, what action can Council take to effect behavioural change but also to encourage more residents to come forward with names and potential addresses of those involved in such anti-community activity.

Councillor Bateson
Amenity sites and the booking system. An update on where the council are at with it at present in light of the current easing of restrictions
