Some structures, such as walls and buildings, can become dangerous due to various reasons such as age, weather, vandalism, collision or fire. If a structure is reported to us, a surveyor will visit within 24 hours to carry out an assessment. Responsibility for repairs to a dangerous structure rests with its owner.
If a structure is so dangerous that it becomes an immediate threat to public safety, we may carry out repairs under emergency powers and recover the cost of this at a later date.
You can report a dangerous structure by calling 01622 602701.
