Loose Amenities AssociationWelcome to the website of Loose Amenities Association. The area lies to the south of Maidstone, Kent. At its heart is the picturesque Loose village, pictured above.

The Association owns 21 acres of the Loose Valley and is run by volunteers to preserve and care for the beautiful and unique environment of Loose village and Loose Valley Conservation Area. To fund this work we organise events throughout the year. Visit our Events page to see what's happening in 2013.

Although the dog fouling problem in Loose has reduced greatly since we started our campaign, there are still problem areas in the parish.

We have recently been told of a recurring problem in Waldron Drive, where an irresponsible owner is allowing his or her dog to foul across the entrance to a driveway almost every day.

We are again seeking the help of Maidstone Borough Council so that enforcement activities can be targetted through the council's "Dog Watch" initiative. Dog Watch will see an increased presence by enforcement officers in the area. Information provided in confidence will help to catch this and other irresponsible dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs (a tiny minority, but sadly a persistent one.)

New dog control orders were introduced in April 2013 which make it an offence for a dog owner not to pick up after their dogs anywhere in the borough, and exclude dogs from any enclosed children's play area with a "no dogs" sign. £75 fixed penalty notices have already been issued and monitoring will continue.

If you have concerns regarding dog fouling you can contact MBC to report it on 01622 602202.
