Have your say

Bird boxes will be installed in council houses.

South Cambs District Council is making its homes more energy efficient but filling in wall cracks and crevices can reduce nesting sites for birds and bats.

So the council will ring the tenants of suitable properties and ask if they would like a box fitted. Keen tenants can also call the council on 03450 450500.
