Containment Control Pest Animals

Marlborough District Council's Regional Pest Management Strategy places the obligation for the control of these pest species on the occupier. The level of control required varies from one pest species to another and, in the case of some species, from one property to another.

Council carries out inspections to determine if occupiers have carried out the required control work, undertakes enforcement action where required, carries out inspections to monitor for the presence of these pest species on properties surrounding known sites and provides affected occupiers and interested parties with information relating to these pest species.
