Approval for Demolition

Consent to Demolish

It may also be necessary to consult the Planning Officer who will advise whether the building(s) has or have any historical or architectural significance or whether the premises are situated in a conservation area. The purpose is to advise at an early stage whether specific and formal planning consent may be necessary for the demolition works. It is anticipated that this consultation period will take two weeks from the date the notice is given.

The council has the statutory period of six weeks to issue the demolition notice but will aim to do this within four weeks or earlier. Copies of the notice will also be sent to the utility services (Gas, Water and Electricity) and to adjoining owners/occupiers as required by the Act.

When notified of commencement, the surveyor will carry out inspections during the course of demolition and on completion to ensure the conditions of demolition are met.

Attention is drawn to the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 that apply to all demolition works (Health and Safety Executive).
