During office hours such reports of dangerous building are reported to its Building Control Team within the Planning and Place Service. Outside normal working hours the council responds via its Duty Emergency Incident Officer (DEIO).
The Council first sought to compile a supplier list in 2016-2017 in response to a number of high profile dangerous building incidents that had occurred periodically throughout the district, and had necessitated specialist responses that were often co-ordinated by the local authority working with the emergency services.
At the conclusion of the current arrangements, the Council is now seeking contractors to register their interest in applying for the specialisms listed below.
