One More Down

Recommended Posts

So how often should a building that is unoccupied be inspected and by whom?

Given that he council have no money to spare then inspecting unoccupied buildings comes way down the list of priorities. Even the council owned occupied ones very rarely get a full inspection, or even an inspection. (Town hall gates right outside the council offices spring to mind. Only got something done when bits started dropping off)

Probably by the Council appointed "Inspector of Unoccupied Buildings" at periods specified in the "Council Rules for the Inspection of Unoccupied Buildings that are in Danger of Spontaneous Collapse Unless Someone Does Something". Surely such a post exists and doesn't cost the council much more than the salaries of 2 or 3 Refuse Operatives?

If you don't know to which port your sailing, no wind is favourable -  is there a Council Plan for the development of the Town Centre or is it to be left to the short term and piecemeal interests of developers ?

As often as is needed! they did have the money to buy the Cabinet works, go to court and then to pay for demolishion , anyone know the reason why they did this? However the building owners should be billed for any inspections.

Surely an unstable building is a danger and the council should be encouraging unoccupied buildings to be reused, like other councils.
