Report a dangerous structure

The term 'dangerous structure' covers buildings, parts of building, garden walls or hoardings that are posing a safety risk.

Buildings, like people, suffer from an ageing process. This can result in the building becoming weaker. Building or structures can become dangerous for many reasons including poor maintenance, fire or weather damage, vehicle impact or explosion.

Report a dangerous structure

Once completed, this will be forwarded to a Surveyor.

Building Control Surveyors will investigate reports of dangerous buildings and structures. Our aim is to inspect reported dangerous structures within 24 hours (2 hours where reported by the emergency services) and, to ensure buildings and structures are made safe and their condition does not put at risk or cause injury to members of the public.

Out of hours emergencies should be reported to the Out of Hours Service by telephoning Southampton (023) 8023 3344.
