Rossendale Borough Council

A to Z

Demolitions - enforcements: Outline

Under Section 80 of the Building Act 1984 anyone intending to carry out demolition work is required to notify the Council.

This generally applies to the demolition of any building or part of a building greater than 1750 cubic feet. Further details are shown in the extract from the Building Act at the end of this section but if you are in any way unsure please contact us.

Notice should be given by completing the demolition notice in related downloads and should include details of the building to which it relates and the works of demolition intended to be carried out. A location plan of the building and adjoining streets must be provided together with a method statement for the demolition of larger buildings.
The Council then has six weeks to respond with appropriate notices and consultation under Sections 81 and 82 of the Act. This process normally only takes a few days.


Normal Office Hours 9am-5pm Monday to Friday (Except Public Holidays)
