You need to tell us if you intend to demolish a building or part of a building, at least 6 weeks before the demolition.
You don’t need to tell us if you are going to demolish:
- a small building that is less than 50m3 (external volume)
- an internal part of a building, where the building is occupied and it is intended that it should continue to be occupied
- an agricultural building, unless it forms part of a building with other uses
- a greenhouse, conservatory, shed or prefabricated garage, where they form part of a larger building
To submit notice, you need to complete the demolition notice form (pdf)
You will also need a 1:1250 site location plan to complete the form.
After you have told us you intend to demolish a building, we will send you a counter notice. You cannot demolish the building until you have received the counter notice, or 6 weeks have passed.
You may also need to get planning permission or prior approval to demolish a building.
