Apply for a demolition notice

Our demolition management service helps ensure that buildings are demolished safely. When we receive a Demolition Notice from a contractor, we send them a list of requirements detailing how the demolition should be carried out. This includes:

  • the weathering and shoring of adjacent buildings
  • a ban on the burning of any materials on site
  • a requirement to minimise the effect on adjoining properties
  • a requirement for them to ensure the site is safe and secure

Buildings cannot be demolished without a demolition notice. We must ensure that the relevant conditions are being complied with.

This service is free of charge. The easiest way to apply is online using our online application form.
