Government map shows all the bird flu control zones in Nottinghamshire

Almost half of the active bird flu control zones cover parts of Nottinghamshire, government data shows. Three control zones, which are put in place to manage outbreaks of avian influenza, have been spread across the county.

Two of the zones, which consist of a 3km protection zone and 10km surveillance zone, centre around the Newark/Ashfield areas. The other centres on the Sandiacre area and spreads into the Broxtowe borough, as shown by a disease map.

People must follow a number of strict regulations in the 10km surveillance zones. Captive animals must not be moved to or from a premises where other captive birds are kept. Poultry meat, litter and eggs can only be moved within or outside the zone with a license.

In the 3km protection zone, poultry and other captive birds must be kept indoors unless a veterinary inspector allows an exception. Cases of bird flu have recently been found at a Lowdham poultry farm, a small holding in Southwell and a backyard flock near Ilkeston.

The control zones account for three of the UK’s total of six. Two 15km zones are in Shropshire and one 15km zone and a 3km captive bird controlled zone are in East Sussex.
