Dear Bridgend County Borough Council,

I am a local environmental enthusiast and I recently have been studying the issue of the dog fouling in the residential areas.

May I ask how many dog fouling complaints have you received in the years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019?

It would very much help me in my research.

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Lengvarska
