Breeding of animals on council property

By on 09/04/2014 in News

We are aware there is a growing interest in how the breeding of animals, in particular dogs, is monitored within the council's housing stock.

For clarity, Birmingham City Council has never given permission to council tenants to have more than two dogs or use their home or garden for the breeding of animals.

Section 10 of the Conditions of Tenancy document, clearly states that tenants, their friends or anyone living or visiting the property must obtain written permission - therefore this is not allowed - if they want to keep more than two dogs or use their home or garden to breed animals.

Where tenants are found to be in breach of these conditions, and do not remove any animals they do not have permission keep, they may face court action and ultimately could be evicted.

A Birmingham City Council spokesperson said: “We have never given permission to council tenants to have more than two dogs or use their home or garden for the breeding of animals.

“If anyone has any concerns, they should contact the council on 0121 303 1111. Where any cases of breeding or over occupancy of dogs in a council property are reported, we will take action against their owners / the tenants.”
