Our offices are now closed to the public so we would encourage you to access services and information through this website.

Grants payments to businesses are now available. Please visit www.charnwood.gov.uk/coronavirus_business_support_grants_payments

Please note: Unfortunately, due to staffing issues because of the coronavirus pandemic we have taken the decision to suspend this service, including existing visits. We will continue to review this decision in line with government advice. For the latest information on service changes, visit www.charnwood.gov.uk/coronavirus.

For all other pests we would advise to either consider employing a private pest control company to carry out a treatment or try and treat yourself using traps or poison which is available over the counter, (please follow the instructions on the product labels if you use over-the-counter poisons).

There is information on our website or you could visit the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) website.

Professional membership of either the BPCA or the National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA) are advised for you to look out for when looking at obtaining a private contractor.

If you rent your property we suggest you speak to your landlord/housing association for any assistance they may be able to give.
