The BT Times recently reported on the rat problem experienced in the Village, mainly in Broad Street. A further report was given at the Annual Parish Meeting.

The Parish Council have been advised that there is no longer a free service delivered by TDC or other public institution. The TD Council will however intervene should residents not attend to the matter privately at a loaded cost, legally enforced.

The BT Parish Council has negotiated a very special discount from the local Devon Pest Control company who are considered by TDC to provide an excellent service. They have conducted a free survey of a number of effected properties.

Wishing to avoid legal intervention and helping you, BT Parish Council have negotiated an excellent price for treatment to only £36.25(£43.50 INCLUDING VAT) per eradication visit, based on a minimum of 15 properties signing up.

(Much less than the cost for a single property of some £100 per visit.)

The number of treatment visits per property will depend on the level of infestation.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please complete the form below and return, before Thursday 5 July, either by email to The Parish Clerk: or deliver to Steve White at Pendana Cottage, Broad Street (between the Bead Cellar and the pub).
