Dangerous structures and public safety

We have the facilities to deal with dangerous buildings and structures relating to safeguarding members of the public and investigating reports of dangerous buildings and structures within the borough.

You can contact us during office hours on 01784 446359 and out of hours by contacting the duty officer on 01932 425060.

In most cases, we will give guidance to the building owners on necessary remedial work. In an emergency, immediate action may be needed to make a building or structure temporarily safe and it may be necessary to arrange our own emergency contractors to undertake the work, on behalf of the owner, and to recharge costs incurred to the owners of the property.
