Dog Fouling and Waste Bins in Crayke

Despite regular reminders we are still experiencing littering and dog fouling around parts of Crayke. There is no excuse for dog fouling, and not only is it unpleasant it also represents a health hazard to people, pets, livestock and wildlife.

Crayke PC and Hambleton DC have provided 5 litter bins and 8 dog waste bins around Crayke village. The majority of dog walkers do responsibly clean up after their dogs, but the minority who don’t should be aware that dog fouling is an offence under British law, and is classified as anti-social behaviour on the part of the dog owner, and may be subject to conviction and fines.

Anyone witnessing dog fouling can report this to either the Parish Council, Hambleton District Council (using this link: or using the police non-emergency phone number 101.

A map is provided here to remind everyone of the locations of all litter and dog waste bins. Please click on the link below:

Protection of the village green on Church Hill, Crayke

The grassed area on Church Hill between the highway and the property boundaries (on both sides) is a highly valued and much loved open space, loved by residents of Crayke and by visitors alike.

The fact that this Area remains in such good and visually appealing condition is a testimony to the efforts of the people of Crayke over many decades. The open area on Church Hill is also protected by various laws and regulations. From time to time the Parish Council decides to remind parishioners and visitors to Crayke about these regulations and asks for help in protecting the green.

Attached is a letter recently sent out to all residents on Church Hill, although the points made all apply to all residents and visitors to Crayke.
