Doncaster Council has launched new online systems to make accessing pest control services quicker and easier, and to enable people to report lost and found dogs.
Anyone experiencing pest infestations in their home can now use the new self–service system. People needing help can choose an appointment time that suits them and pay for the service online, either on the move or in the comfort of their own home. When you book an appointment online the information is entered straight into the work schedule of pest control officers in your area which allows the council to schedule visits more efficiently and provide a faster response time.
The pest control team can prevent and control pest problems including mice, moles and squirrels. After the initial visit the team will perform a follow up visit if necessary, and provide a guarantee for four weeks after the treatment has been given. The service is competitively priced and some treatments are carried out free of charge. Discounts are available if you are in receipt of Housing or Council Tax Benefit.
This is the latest of a number of services to be made available online, including applying for school places and reporting lost, found and stray dogs. The new online dog reporting system helps owners to trace lost dogs as well as providing a central point where people can report a lost dog they have found. All reports are added to a list on the council website showing the breed of dog and the date and area it was lost or found. If your dog has gone missing, or if you have found a dog and want to help find its owner, be sure to report it online where you can also check the list.
Councillor Joe Blackham, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Neighbourhoods, said: ‘Doncaster Council continues to increase the number of services that are available online. This is making it simpler for residents to access the services they need and allows the council to work in a more efficient and cost-effective way. We offer a first rate pest control service and by allowing people to book online it further enhances the service for residents with quicker response times. We also hope our new lost and found dog reporting system will be a more effective way to help reunite owners with their dogs.’
