Demolition notice

If you're planning a demolition, you need to notify the Royal Borough of Greenwich's Building Control six weeks before starting any works.

This is to allow enough time to:

  • gather the documents and information relating to the process
  • consult with various organisations
  • prepare any comments or requirements.

How to give notice

Complete our demolition notice form and send it, together with the appropriate charge, to Building Control.

Contractors' responsibility

Generally, demolition activity causes increased levels of dust, noise and vibration. Contractors should use best practice methods for the least inconvenience.

We work with contractors to achieve responsible demolition and have the power to prosecute those who fail to comply.
