You can report a dangerous building, wall or structure to us and we'll inspect it as soon as we can.
If it's causing a potential hazard for the public we'll take appropriate action to make it safe.
If you're the building owner, you'll be responsible for all the costs involved in making the building safe. If we're unable to contact you we may have to carry out immediate work to remove the danger to the public without your permission, and claim the costs back from you.
How to make a report to us
For emergencies you should call (01226) 772678 Monday to Friday 9am to 12pm, or (01226) 773555 outside of these times.
If you don't consider the structure to be causing an immediate danger, you can email us and we'll arrange to visit the location.
If you're planning to demolish a building you'll need to contact us for approval so that we can make sure the work is monitored and doesn't cause any risk to public safety. Read more about demolishing buildings.
