Key Performance Information

Levels of dog fouling

Keeping our streets clean has been identified as one of the biggest priorities for our residents for a number of years now and this is why we have introduced this measure.

This indicator tells us how effective our street cleansing services are, and gives us a basis to review the methods and coverage of this service to improve the cleanliness of Pendle.

The cleanliness of an area is assessed via surveys we carry out locally every four months. Surveyors use grades of 'none', 'light', 'significant' and 'heavy' and assessments for this measure are based upon the number of instances' of dog fouling in one area. These grades are based on the Keep Britain Tidy Local Environmental Quality Surveys system grading guidance.
