Demolition notices

The demolition of any building that exceeds 50 cubic metres (1750 cubic feet), roughly the size of a single garage, will require Slough Building Control Services to issue you a demolition notice before starting demolition work.

You will need to notify us in writing of your intention and not commence demolition until you receive a demolition notice in return from us.

The following is a guide to the process:

  • Complete and return a Demolition Notice application form, found below. You should include information such as precautionary measures you intend to put in place to safeguard adjacent or adjoining buildings and any general public protection measures. You must submit this no later than 6 weeks before the intended start date.
  • You must also send your notification to adjacent occupiers and gas, electric and water suppliers.
  • You should NOT COMMENCE demolition until you have received a counter notice under Section 81 of the Building Act 1984 from the council specifying conditions under which the demolition is to be undertaken. Failure to notify the council in accordance with the provisions of Section 80(2) of the Building Act could render a person liable of summary conviction to a fine Level 4 on standard scale, currently not exceeding £2,500.
  • We will send copies of the notice to the gas, electric and water suppliers, environmental health and the fire service.
