Report a Dangerous Structure
A dangerous building or structure can be anything on or about a building or structure that may be a danger to members of the public, for example, loose or falling roof tiles, walls or fences that are in danger of collapse, unstable chimneys.
A building that is reported as dangerous will be inspected the same day or within an hour if it is an emergency, by a surveyor on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you wish to report a dangerous building or structure, please telephone 01446 704842 during office hours or 01446 700111 outside normal office hours. If a dangerous building or structure presents a serious and immediate threat to public safety it should be reported to the police by dialling 999.
Vale of Glamorgan Building Excellence Awards
Each year the Building Control Group organise an award scheme, which recognises good standards of building as well as environmental, communication and disability requirements.
Find out more about these awards and previous winners.
The Council reports annually to Welsh Government on its performance. The report can be viewed here:
The Party Wall Act covers various work that is going to be carried out directly to an existing party wall or structure, a new building at or astride the boundary line between properties and excavation within 3 or 6 metres of a neighbouring building(s) or structure(s), depending on the depth of the hole or proposed foundations. This is a civil matter that the Council does not administer.
More information can be found on the Government website (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/party-wall-etc-act-1996-guidance)
Please note that throughout the week a duty officer will be available to answer general queries. However it is recommended that for any detailed or application specific queries you should arrange an appointment directly with the relevant case officer.
