A SECTION of Barnsley Council that provided money towards anti dog-fouling posters to mount on lamp posts were told by colleagues in another department that it couldn't be done. 

Oxspring Parish Council ordered the posters to encourage dog walkers to clean up after their pets, with half the money provided by Barnsley Council’s ward alliance.

The intention had been to mount the posters on street lamps, but when the parish council sought permission from Barnsley Council’s highways department, they were told it couldn't be done. 

The parish council is now having to find alternative locations to mount the posters, on its own land.
