Do not feed the animals!
Following the maintenance works recently undertaken to the water basins on the Eastern Common at Tadpole Garden Village, the contractor carrying out these works noted the presence of rats in the area.
Although the presence of rats in areas such as this is not uncommon, the contractor has advised that this can be significantly mitigated by reducing the food sources for the rats. At present there is evidence that the rats are being attracted to the area by food which residents appear to be bringing and leaving for birds, ducks and other native species.
Therefore, with this in mind Preim would politely request that residents do not feed any of the animals in the vicinity of the water basins at any location at Tadpole Garden Village, nor leave any food in these areas. Preim will shortly install signage in these areas to reaffirm this.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation, and we trust you understand the reasons for the above request.
However, should you have any queries please do contact the Preim Ltd Helpdesk.
