Building Control - Demolition
Any person intending to demolish a building or part of a building to which section 80 of the Building Act 1984 refers, must, by law, give the council notice of their intention.
Upon receipt of such a notice the building control division will respond with a counter notice listing a number of conditions which the person concerned must comply with.
These may include such items as weatherproofing adjoining buildings; shoring of adjoining buildings; cutting off all services (i.e. gas, water, electricity), sealing or removing sewers and drains etc.
Any person aggrieved by the conditions may appeal to the Magistrates Court to have any or all removed. Failure to comply however may result in legal proceedings being taken against the person concerned.
