    The Council provides domestic pest control services to deal with a range of pests.

The Council charges customers directly and pays the contractor their agreed fee per job. 

    The current contract expires on the 31st May 2020. It is proposed to continue using an external contractor to provide the service and to undertake a procurement exercise to appoint an external contractor. It is the intention to offer a 12 month contract with the option to extend for a further 12 months.  This relatively short contract period will allow the service to continue whilst the proposal to set up an in house service can be fully and properly explored.
