Dog fouling and use of lawn

Following on from the email sent out to all residents at Kent Terrace last week, a small black dog has been seen wandering around the terrace garden. Please could we remind that If you are a dog owner, that the CEPC’s Garden Regulations state that dogs are not allowed to foul in beds, lawns or permitted access to terrace gardens, regardless of any intention to clear up afterwards. Dog fouling makes maintaining your garden areas a very unpleasant task for the gardeners and constitutes a health hazard. It is dangerous as contact with dog excrement can cause toxocariasis, an infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness or seizures. We do not expect CEPC Gardeners to work in such conditions.

Please can you ensure that all family members, household staff, contractors and visitors are aware of the relevant Garden Regulations. A copy of which can be found at

Please could I also remind all residents that the lawn areas are currently undergoing lawn renovations and are closed to users (signage has been erected on the lawn areas detailing this). Excessive wear through personal training or heavy footfall will not allow the seed to successfully germinate and grow. Please can all residents keep off the lawns until reinstatement is complete and the signage has been removed by the gardeners.

Thank you for your cooperation.
