There is a £150 fee for a demolition notice. This fee can be paid by calling 01257 515162. .
A counter notice (under Section 81 of the Building Act) will be served on you that may require you to carry out works to services and adjoining buildings. This is to ensure that gas, electricity and water supplies are made safe, redundant drains are sealed, affected buildings are properly supported and weatherproofed, and on completion, debris is removed and the site made safe.
Demolition works can cause problems for neighbours of the site. You can reduce or avoid causing any nuisance to the neighbours, or action being taken by us, if you follow our advice.
If you are a householder doing some or all the work yourself, try to avoid causing any noise or dust in the evenings or on Sundays. If noise problems occur, the neighbours, and us can take legal action. If you think your work may cause a significant nuisance to the neighbours from noise or vibration please contact us prior to commencing work.
