Councillors this evening agreed to the withdrawal of the ‘out of hours dog control service’ on a permanent basis.

The service was suspended in July 2019 as a result of necessary in-year savings.

Councillors heard that all legacy councils provided an out of hours service for Dog Control, Food Control and Health & Safety, Dangerous Structures and Emergency Planning.

The report read “Whilst voluntary arrangements are still in place for the remaining service areas, those for Dog Control have been suspended now for 12 months. A review of the impact of this decision has been undertaken.”

The service costs in the region £50,000 – £60,000 per annum. Darryl Wilson was the only Councillor that voted against the decision.

The final decision will go before full council next month and if approved, negotiations will commence with relevant employees with respect to employment contract amendments.
