Report a dangerous structure

The responsibility for dangerous structures and dangerous buildings rests with the owner of the structure or building. If your building or home has suffered damage as the result of an incident you are advised to contact your building insurers in the first instance.

Where we are notified that a structure may be dangerous, depending on the nature of the danger and the risk to the public the Building Control team may visit the site and give relevant advice to the owner with a view to make sure it is safe for the public. We may use enforcement where the owner of the property is unable or unwilling to make the situation safe.

Report a dangerous structure or building

If you need to report a dangerous structure, please contact Customer Services.

We aim to carry out a risk assessment on dangerous structures within 24 hours of notification during normal office hours.

Where an incident happens outside of office hours, please call Building Control on 01344 354100 or email to leave a message which will be dealt with on the next working day.
