A community council is considering banning dogs from Rhos Cemetery due to “on-going issues with dog fouling”.

Rhosllanerchrugog Community Council is currently consulting with the public on the proposals, which would see all dogs – excluding guide dogs – banned from the site on Cemetery Road.

It comes amid ongoing issues with dog fouling at the cemetery.

As part of the consultation Rhosllanerchrugog Community Council said: “There is significant dog fouling all over the cemetery, even on gravestones, with individuals allowing their dogs to come into the cemetery unsupervised, as well as dog walkers not picking up after their dogs, even though there are dog foul bag dispensers at the cemetery.

“Rhosllanerchrugog Community Council wishes to seek the views of all those with a likely interest in the proposal.

“It is important that all views can be taken into account before a decision is made.”

The consultation will run until April 8.

You can take part by contacting the community council by calling 01978 840007 or by emailing [email protected]
