Approval for Demolition

Consent to Demolish

You may need to consult the Planning Office who will advise whether the building(s) has or have any historical or architectural significance. They can also advise if the premises are in a conservation area.

We will advise at an early stage whether specific planning consent is needed for the demolition works. This consultation period will take two weeks from the date the notice is given.

The council has a statutory period of six weeks to issue the demolition notice.

Copies of the notice are sent to the utility services (Gas, Water and Electricity). They are also sent to adjoining owners and occupiers (as required by the Act).

This applies to the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 that apply to all demolition works (Health and Safety Executive).
