We control dangerous buildings and structures. We treat all reported incidents seriously and provide a 24 hour, 365 days a year service. If you see a dangerous building or structure, please report it to us.
Where we have been informed about a potentially dangerous building or structure, a building control surveyor will investigate the reported building or structure as soon as is practical but within 24 hours, where possible and safe to do so. The owner(s) or occupiers of the premises will be informed if known.
Depending on the outcome of the initial inspection, we will determine what action is necessary, ranging from regular monitoring to, in some cases, demolition or removal of the danger. We can order the owner(s) to 'make safe' or remove the danger. We can reclaim all our costs from the building owner(s).
