Poultry keeping (including fowls, geese, pigeons, and similar birds) is allowed in the urban areas.
There are certain requirements which must be met if nuisance is not to arise.
Requirements for building poultry runs and houses
Poultry house maintenance
Every poultry house must be kept clean, dry, and in good repair and cleaned out weekly. It must be thoroughly and effectively treated with insecticide at least every six months.
When cleaning runs and houses, droppings should be buried with at least 25cm of soil to prevent odour and flies breeding.
Should you require any further information on any of the above items please feel free to contact our Environmental Health Officers.
