Seagull Egg Removal Scheme By Julie, Posted April 7, 2014 @ 4:02 pm

Seagull Egg Removal Scheme

The Parish Council will be running the egg removal scheme again this year.  A sum of money has been set aside in the budget and the Parish Council has contracted a reputable pest controller to will remove eggs and replace them with dummy eggs.  This method has proved successful in many towns across the country. Indeed many residents already pay for this service privately, but it is more cost effective to concentrate the contractor in an area for a few days.  The Parish Council will offer this service on a first come, first served basis until all the money available under the scheme has been spent.

If you have seagulls nesting on your property and wish to put your name forward for this scheme, please contact us as soon as the breeding season starts and your name will be placed on a waiting list.  We will contact you when we know the date the contractor is due to be in your area.  There will be a nominal £10 charge to cover administration costs, which will be returned if numbers of requests for assistance exceed the budget.

For further information  please contact the Parish Clerk, Julie Larter on 01872 501101 or email julielarter.parishclerk@hotmail.co.uk
