Nuisances from Pigeons.
The Council had under consideration a report adopted by the
Metropolitan Boroughs' Standing Joint Committee on the question
of nuisances caused by pigeons, in which this Council and other
Metropolitan Borough Councils were invited to express their views on
the question of the promotion of a “Pigeon Week.” The Metropolitan
Boroughs' Standing Joint Committee were informed that although this
Council were not in favour of the organisation of a “ pigeon week,”
they were of opinion that concerted action should be taken by all
the Metropolitan Boroughs with a view to abating nuisances caused
by pigeons, and that the line of such concerted action might be
determined by that Committee.
Fouling of Footways by Dogs.
In 1926 the Council made a by-law which was sanctioned by the
Home Office prohibiting the fouling of footpaths by dogs on a lead.
It is permissible for anyone to institute proceedings against offenders
of this by-law. No prosecutions were instituted during the year.
