Environmental complaints

Flies and insects

Some agricultural practices, most notably intensive chicken and livestock housing, may create the right breeding conditions for flies which can then become a nuisance to surrounding properties. We will investigate reports of nuisance flies under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. We will work with local farmers to try and resolve the problem.

Build-up of rubbish

We can investigate a build-up of rubbish which is likely to provide a source of food and shelter for vermin such as rats and mice.

We will visit and assess whether the build-up of rubbish is likely to cause a problem. If it is we will work with the resident responsible to improve the situation.
