What is a Section 80 Demolition Notice ?

If your considering demolishing an existing building you will need to submit a demolition, Section 80 Notice together with your (RAMS) to your local authority according to section 80 of the buildings Act 1984.

Your RAMS should include a demolition method statement, Risk Assessment, COSHH Assessment, comprehensive plan of the building and adjoining streets, and a list of occupiers adjacent to the building.

You will also need to notify service providers, including Gas, Water and Electricity. You must also have a Pre-demolition survey carried out on the building before you start any demolition activities.

On completion of the above you will normally have to wait 6 weeks before you commence demolition works. Your local authority then has approximately 6 weeks to respond to your section 80 demolition notification.

You should receive a counter notice within 6 weeks of receipt of the demolition notification from your local authority outlining any additional conditions that need to be met.

You need a notice for any demolition except for:

  • when a demolition order is made under the Housing Act 1957
  • the demolition of an internal part of an occupied building
  • the demolition of a building with a volume of 50m3or less
