Invest more resources in tackling litter, dog fouling and graffiti
The We Love Leith travel survey shows that litter and dog fouling on local streets deters people from walking more.
One thing only really puts me off Leith , well Edinburgh in general. The complete inability of locals to pick up their dogs sh#t. I have lived in cities all over the UK , and some in Europe, I have never seen dog mess as bad as it is here , I find it impossible to understand why a proud people like the Scots , generally so house proud and tidy even allow it. I would be so ashamed if I couldn't bring myself to pick it up , I would get rid of my dog.
Why is the council doing nothing about this ? It must be a health hazard?
No poo bins , no access to free poo bags , at least none I've seen. What is going on? I was down at Loanhead yesterday , for a walk in the woods , it was worse ! Unbelievable.
Please , please if you walk a dog in Leith , pick up his mess .
