Building control

What should I do if I see a dangerous structure?

A building must pose a genuine threat of harm for us to take action - unstable walls or roof tiles being blown off in high wind, for instance. Please contact us if you see a building which you think might be dangerous.

We will inspect a building as soon as possible and if it poses a significant risk, we will employ contractors to make it safe straight away. If there is no immediate danger, we will try to contact the owner and make sure they remove the danger. If they fail to comply, we can apply for a court order allowing us to do it instead.

We will attempt to recover any costs from the building owner.
