Council statement on bird cull


DERWENT VALLEY COUNCIL
MEDIA STATEMENT

Results of Independent Review 26/07/2019

Council has received the independent investigation report into the poisoning of the birdlife at Tynwald Park. Late yesterday afternoon, the mayor, elected members and staff were briefed on the findings.

The report highlights the need for improved internal communications within Council and measures will be put in place to ensure that this occurs.

Council is unable to comment further on the findings of the report due to legal advice received in relation to the ongoing investigation being undertaken by DPIPWE. For further information in relation to the status of this investigation, please contact DPIPWE directly.

This has been a stressful time for everyone involved. The independent review was undertaken to provide transparency and answers to the community, and we would have liked to say more for everyone concerned.

It is unfortunate that we are unable to provide the level of detail expected by the community but we must allow the appropriate processes to be undertaken and respect the strong advice we have received from our legal advisors.

The public can be assured that appropriate measures have been undertaken to ensure the safety of Tynwald Park for all users.

Daniel Smee
ACTING GENERAL MANAGER
