Council investigates bird scarer noise complaints in Cotgrave, Tollerton, Gamston and West Bridgford

Rushcliffe Borough Council is continuing to investigate reports of audible bird scarers in the Cotgrave, Tollerton, Edwalton and Gamston. 

Rushcliffe Borough Council is working with local landowners and farmers to secure their support to reduce and minimise noise disturbance to local residents.

They are in common use at this time of year typically until the end March and are an accepted method for bird control in rural areas so long as they are operated in accordance with accepted guidance.

The Council has found when dealing with these matters that there is high compliance with the code and issues are resolved quickly with landowners and farmers generally happy to work within the guidelines if requested to do so.

Any further reports of noise issues with the devices can be completed at when the location of the device should wherever possible be identified.
