North Norfolk District Council, in partnership with Broadland District and Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Councils, has awarded a new pest control preferred supplier contract.
The joint procurement contract with Millennium Pest Control Ltd will lead to savings for residents across the three councils and the introduction of a new online booking system to streamline services, giving people the opportunity to book 24/7.
Cllr Tom FitzPatrick Leader of North Norfolk District Council: “We’re really pleased to have Millennium Pest Control as our approved contractor and that working on a joint procurement basis with Kings Lynn and Broadland has allowed us to negotiate very good rates for all our residents.
“If you experience a problem with pests in your home you are guaranteed a service costing significantly less than market rates.”
From October 1, 2016 anyone in the three council areas experiencing a problem with pests, such as bed bugs, rats, fleas, cluster flies, carpet beetles, mice, wasps, or cockroaches, should contact Millennium Pest Control via their council website.
Cllr John Fisher, Broadland District Council’s portfolio holder for environmental excellence, said: “This new contract shows excellent partnership working between district councils, and one that delivers great value services for our residents in Broadland.”
A new online booking system will ensure residents’ concerns are dealt with as soon as possible. And for an extra charge, there will be an express service.
Millennium Pest Services will deliver quarterly reports to each council ensuring their environmental teams are aware of services provided and any complaints made. If there are wider pest control issues in any of the council areas, these will be tackled as normal by the councils’ enforcement teams.
