Under Section 80 of the Building Act 1984, anyone intending to carry out demolition work within the district is required to notify the council.

The council then has six weeks to respond with appropriate notices and consultation under Sections 81 and 82 of the Building Act. This process normally only takes a few working days.

You can contact us by telephone on 01727 819289 or by email buildingcontrol@stalbans.gov.uk
