Gloucester City Council Gull programme
The increase in urban gull populations is a national problem and many of the councils along the Severn Estuary have experienced increased numbers of gulls nesting and breeding on roofs in their area.
Since 2001, Gloucester City Council has taken the lead in dealing with this problem by treating the eggs in nests on roofs of businesses in the city.
Currently, our Contractors, Mitie Pest control, remove the eggs and nests from over 150 roofs in the city centre and along the Bristol Road.
In addition, Cory Environmental, who are the operators of Hempsted Landfill Site, will continue to deploy effective deterrents to prevent gulls from using this site as a food source.
Working in partnership with the County Council, The Environment Agency and Cory Environmental, we will continue with the existing programme as the most effective means for us to control the breeding population. The gradual reduction in the number of nests we are encountering would suggest that we are deterring the gulls from the roofs that we are treating.
