We are currently streamlining our processes, which means when we collect your rent via Direct Debit it will have a new account reference. This does not change the way in which we collect Direct Debits. If you pay between 16th – 22nd of the month your October payment will be taken later than planned.

Dead animal removal

You are here

The Council removes dead animals from the public highway. Unfortunately the service does not cover the removal of dead animals from private land.

We aim to remove dead animals by the end of the next working day after they have been reported.  Where possible we will remove a dead animal the same day it is reported.  We do not remove dead animals outside of normal working hours.

Once removed, dead animal carcasses are disposed of as quickly as possible for health and hygiene reasons. We are unable to retain dead animals for private burial, but will attempt to contact the owner of a dead animal found with a microchip or contact details on a tag.

Dead animals requiring removal from the public highway can be reported using the contact details on this page.
