Warning signIndustrial action is being taken by members of Unite The Union and Unison. This may affect council services over the coming weeks. Currently, bin collections are back on schedule. However, we expect them to be affected again after the bank holiday on Monday 7 May. Please refer to our website nearer the time for updates. ×

Dangerous structures

If a structure is in a dangerous condition and puts the occupants or the public at risk, we may take action regardless of who owns the property. The owner may be required to evacuate or demolish the building, or carry out work to ensure its safety. If the work has to be carried out immediately, we may do the work and recover the costs from the owner.

We give priority to dangerous structures over all other works. Our service standard is to inspect them immediately and to initiate appropriate action.

For help and advice on any dangerous structures during normal working hours, please email our general enquiry team at building.control@dacorum.gov.uk, or call 01442 228587.
