There has been an on-going rat problem around Durrans Court and adjacent Church Street, Fenny Stratford for some time. Local councillor Mohammed Khan arranged for Milton Keynes Council to take a range of actions, including cutting back bushes and using rat catching measures.
But key to a long term solution was to deal with local problems of rubbish storage. The Council following a lot of pressures from local councillors has now put in place 3 special ‘euro’ rubbish bins.
Cllr Khan said, “Cleaning up the refuse areas and getting the new bins in is crucial to on-going work to tackle the rats. Residents also need to use the three new secure bins. I will keep an eye on the problem and help ensure the bins are properly used and the area properly cleaned.”
