The fence at the boundary of a public footpath and a residential house is failing to contain one of the dogs that is kept at this address. One dog is kept chained in the back garden, whilst the other, a white boxer type dog, has dug away at the fence and can now crawl underneath it and stray in the local area. The footpath is used as a route to the adjacent primary school and I use it myself to walk with my daughter to school. I often see the dog roaming the nearby streets, it is intimidating and I feel uneasy as there are so many young children in that area walking to and from school. I hope this fence can be repaired as a matter of public safety, the house forms part of the Flower Council Estate and so Council may share the responsibility of maintaining the fence. I would like to be updated about the progress of this matter as I am currently taking a different, longer, route to my daughter's school.
