Dangerous Structures


One of the functions of the Building Control Service is to ensure that public safety is maintained in relation to harm which could happen from buildings or structures. Therefore if you are aware of any buildings or structures which you believe might cause serious injury to your neighbours or general members of the public, you should report it to Building Control.
