Demolition and building works can be a considerable source of environmental nuisance to the occupants of nearby residential or commercial properties.

The objective of these guidelines is to ensure the development proceeds smoothly with the minimum of disruption to your neighbours and without the need for legal action to be taken by the Council if problems arise.

Please note that Section 80 of the Building Act 1984 requires the person intending to demolish a building, to give the Council 6 weeks notice of the demolition.

The Council may then impose conditions appropriate to the scale of the demolition.

Such notifications should be addressed to the Building Control Section of the Council.
