Demolition application

Demolishing part or all of a building should be undertaken by a competent person or contractor. It is the owner's responsibility to make sure it is carried out in a safe manner and all relevant notifications are given.

You must give us at least 6 weeks' notice of any intended demolition work that involves all or part of any building, unless it is:

  • as a result of a demolition order issued by the council
  • an internal part of an occupied building that will continue to be occupied
  • a building less than 50¬†cubic metres externally measured
  • a greenhouse, conservatory, shed or prefabricated garage, even if it is part of a larger building
  • an agricultural building that is not contiguous to another building

Please read our demolition application guidance for more information.
