Welcome to our new website.
Brede Parish Council is the first tier of local government and is here to represent the needs of the local community. We are a statutory body with 9 councillors.
Brede Parish Council meets on the last Tuesday of every month (except August and December) in the Committee Room at Brede Village Hall at 7.30pm and we encourage parishioners to come along to the meetings and find out what is going on. There is always an opportunity for questions and comments and we would be delighted to see you there.
Problems with inconsiderate dog walkers.
We have been contacted by Brede School with regard to the staff having to remove dog waste from in front of the fence and gates to the school on almost a daily basis.
There is no excuse for this, as there is a dog waste bin over the road next to the telephone box, or failing that, wrapped waste can be put in any of the bins (eg. directly opposite the school on the fence of the Recreation Ground) or taken home and put in the household waste (black) bin.
As well as being unpleasant when trodden through the school, dog waste poses a health threat to children due to parasites contained in it.
It has also been brought to our notice that some people are exercising their dogs on the Recreation Ground.
Dogs are not allowed on the Recreation Ground (Bye Law), for this reason, as the children of the school use it as a sports field as well as the children of the village who play there.
Dog Bin Misuse
Following my recent dog walk along the Udimore Road I found the dog bin had been misused yet again.
Use of dog waste bins
These bins are place at locations around the Village for the use of dog walkers to dispose of dog waste that may occur during a walk. They are not for the disposal of dog waste that occurs at home, this should be placed in your grey waste bin provided by Rother District Council
The dog bins that are provided by the parish council and are emptied once a week.
If you have any issues or could suggest extra location for these bin please contact me so that the parish council can discuss a way forward.
