Dangerous structures and public safety

A dangerous structure is one which could cause harm to the public at any time. Weather and wind can often cause a situation or make it worse. Examples of dangerous structures include: 

  • Loose scaffolding 

  • Damage caused by fire 

  • Road traffic accidents, for example where a vehicle has hit a building or garden wall 

  • Loose roof tiles or chimney pots 

  • Leaning garden walls.  

We have the power to deal with or remove buildings and structures or the parts of them that are dangerous.
