Housing requirements

We are about to see weather challenges across large parts of the country. Wet snow particularly can bring net and poles down. Maintaining biosecurity whatever the weather is still a priority.

Since the Housing Order was introduced for Wales on 2nd December, the Declaration for that nation has now been amended to include notes bringing the requirements closer to those in England. You can read about cases and requirements for each administration here:

Will your fences support the weight of snow on an overhead net?
