Dangerous or unsafe structures or buildings
Call us immediately on 999 to report unsafe buildings/other structures and debris which pose a danger to anyone.
Unsafe cladding, advertising boards, roofing or other materials – if the issue can be corrected quickly and safely by the building owner or responsible person, they should attempt to do so.
Our attendance at structures which need making safe, but do not pose an immediate risk, may incur a special service call charge.
If trees have fallen, or are likely to, and pose a risk to life or significant damage to property, report this via 999 immediately.
Report it to your local council if the tree is not a danger but is obstructing a path or roadway, traffic lights or road signage. Also, call the council if the tree is at risk of falling but not a danger to the public.
