Reporting a dangerous building, wall or structure

All buildings, walls or structures which appear to be dangerous should be reported to us as soon as possible. We are responsible for removing any danger they may pose.

  • During office hours - telephone 01282 661722*
  • Out of office hours - telephone 01282 661999

*This number should only be used to report dangerous buildings and structures. 

We respond to all reports 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We try to inspect any building or structure reported as being dangerous within two hours.

If the building or structure poses a potential danger to the safety of people, we take the appropriate action to remove the danger.

We have legal powers to make the owners of buildings or structures remedy any defects.

If necessary, we can ask our contractors to carry out works to make the building or structure safe.

We then recover expenses from the owner.
