How to report a dangerous building

If any building or structure is considered to be in a dangerous condition, Building Control Officers are responsible for ensuring that the danger is removed to protect occupiers and the general public.

In the first instance the owner will be informed of the extent of remedial works required. Failure to execute the works within a specified time period may lead to the Council taking legal action in the interests of public safety. In extreme circumstances the Council can invoke emergency powers to require the building or structure to be made safe or demolished immediately.

The Local Authority are permitted to recover the costs associated with any such measures undertaken in an emergency from the owner of the building.

We have a 24-hour call-out system for dangerous buildings. If any possible danger is observed please telephone 0161 474 3571 or out of office hours, the emergency control room on 0161 474 5555.
