The decision is a result of a risk assessment on the likelihood of the spread of avian influenza. This showed a reduced risk.
The AIPZ will be lifted across Wales from midday on 15 May 2021. This is in accordance with article 4 (1) (b) of the Avian Influenza and Influenza of Avian Origin in Mammals (Wales) (No. 2) Order 2006 (“the Order”).
Bird gatherings are also allowed to resume from 15 May. However, robust biosecurity must remain in place. Please read more on biosecurity and preventing disease in captive birds.
The lifting of the measures has been declared by the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales and Trefnydd.
