Report a dangerous structure

Building Control may take action against you if you are responsible for any dangerous structures or building to ensure the safety of any occupants or passers-by.

Report a dangerous structure

All reported cases are dealt with in one of the following ways.

If the structure is not in imminent danger of collapse or danger to life, an application may be made to the Magistrates Court to issue an order on you to make it safe or demolish it within a time limit. If this is not carried out the council will do the work and charge you, the owner for the cost of the work. 

For more serious cases the council may serve a notice on you to do the required works immediately. Failure to do so may result in the work being carried out and you the owner charged with the cost of the work.
