Resident Feeding Seagulls

Reported anonymously at 11:27, Sun 13 July 2014

Sent to Brighton and Hove City Council 3 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 500061.

A resident of Willbury Grove is constantly feeding seagulls from their roof top.

This has now attracted over three chicks roosting in the rooftop and countless additional adult gulls to the area - I appreciate that gulls are a necessary evil of seaside life but their exacerbated numbers in one small area have increased noise and the amount of excrement.

The adult gulls can also be quite aggressive at times.

My concern is also the presence of foods scraps will encourage other vermin such as rats to the vicinity.

I would like for the council to discourage active feeding of the gulls and encourage residents to ensure their rubbish is properly secured.
