The Government Chief Vet has confirmed new measures to protect against avian flu that take a more targeted approach to controlling the disease.
Following plans set out earlier this month, all poultry keepers across England must continue to observe strict biosecurity measures, with housing or netting required in higher risk areas.
This new approach will apply from 28 February, when the current prevention zone expires. It gives most keepers the option to let birds outside whilst still taking reasonable precautions against avian flu. The ban on poultry gatherings remains in force.
As at 1st March 2017, Boxted is not in a High Risk Area.
