Welcome to the official website for St Germans Parish Council

An Avian Influenza Prevention Zone has been declared across the whole of England effective from 5pm on 11 November 2020. All poultry keepers in England (whether they have commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock) are required by law to take a range of biosecurity precautions. If you keep poultry (including gamebirds or pet birds) or other captive birds, you must act now to reduce the risk of disease in your flock by following the relevant biosecurity measures required within the AIPZ.  Your stock needs to be feed and watered under cover to prevent contamination from wild birds. Avian influenza is unconnected with coronavirus (COVID-19).
