Submit a notice of demolition, including details of your responsibilities when demolishing a building and how to report someone demolishing a building without permission.
If you intend to demolish the whole or part of a building you are legally required to inform the council's building control team by applying for a 'demolition notice'.
The Building Act 1984 contains provisions that enable local authorities to control demolition works for the protection of public safety and to ensure the site and adjoining premises are made good on completion of the demolition.

You do not need to notify us if you are planning to demolish:

Copies of the demolition notice will also be sent to the following groups:
