Just a reminder about what can be done if local residents have gulls nesting in their home. This was a policy and service which I campaigned for, and was passed in the last administration of Angus council
From Wednesday, April 15, the local authority will resume its free gull egg and nest removal service which is available to householders and tenants.
And those affected by seagulls nesting at their homes are urged to get in contact while action can still be taken.
An Angus Council spokesperson said: “The free service is available during the period when gulls are typically building nests or have eggs in a nest.
“We encourage residents to make contact before the eggs have been laid as we are unable to undertake treatments after the eggs have hatched.
“For further information, or to have gull egg and nests removed, please contact ACCESSLine on 08452 777 778.”
Please note that this free service does not apply to commercial premises whichwill still be expected to deal with gull nests as part of their general maintenance programme and meet the cost involved.
