Demolition control and advice

Anyone intending to carry out demolition work is required to notify the council.

This generally applies to the demolition of any building or part of a building greater than 1750 cubic feet. If you are unsure you should contact us.

Notice should be given in writing and should include details of the building to which it relates and the works of demolition intended to be carried out. The council then has six weeks to respond with appropriate notices and consultation, although this process normally only takes a few days.

You should also send a letter to neighbours before work starts, telling them what to expect and giving them a contact name and telephone number. Keep them informed and deal promptly with any complaints received on site.

Keep dust down by spraying with water when and where you can. There should be no noise heard from the site during these hours: 6pm – 8am Monday to Saturday or any time on Sunday.
