Under clause 21 of the Public Health (General) Regulation 2002, occupiers of premises are required to take reasonable measures to keep the premises free of fleas, other disease-carrying insects, rats and mice.

Where a property is providing a harbourage for disease-carrying pests, Council Environmental Health Officers can order the owner or occupier to take action to place the premises in a healthy condition.

If you suspect that a neighbouring property is harbouring pests you should contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on 9952 8222.
