Buildings that fall into serious disrepair can be dangerous as well as those affected by a sudden fire, storm, explosion or vehicle impact. If you are concerned about a building, get in touch and report it.
Once we receive a report, we will inspect the building and decide whether immediate action is required or whether to contact the owner and agree a timescale for making the property safe. This may be enforced by a court order if the owner fails to take action.
If emergency work is required we will work with the fire, police and highways agency to erect fencing, close roads or organise demolition works if appropriate.
To report an emergency outside office hours, call 01483 755855.
