Rossendale Borough Council

A to Z

Open and derelict properties: Outline

We respond to all reports of dangerous buildings, walls and structures within the Borough on a 24 hour 365 day a year basis. We try to inspect any building or structure reported as being dangerous within three hours.

If the building or structure poses a potential danger to the safety of people, we take the appropriate action to remove the danger. We have legal powers to require the owners of buildings or structures to remedy the defects or we direct our contractors to carry out works to make the building or structure safe. In addition, we provide advice on the structural condition of buildings during fire fighting to the Fire Brigade, or to the Police in the case of vehicular damage.
