How to report a dangerous structure

Dangerous structures

Buildings can become dangerous at any time and for a variety of reasons ranging from settlement or old age, vehicle impact, vandalism or design defects, to more dramatic causes such as fire, explosion or storm damage.

We operate a 24-hour emergency callout service.

Report a dangerous structure to us

If you discover such a building contact:

  • During office hours: 01303 853 538
  • Outside of office hours: 01303 221888

What happens after I report a dangerous structure?

Usually building control surveyors arrange for the owners of such a building to undertake the necessary work to remove the hazard.

In some instances, however, if owners cannot be traced, or cannot undertake immediate action, building control will arrange for its own contractors to remove the danger.

In such circumstances costs incurred by the council are recovered/recharged to the owner of the property.
