Dangerous structures

Buildings and structures that appear to be dangerous should be reported to us straight away. It is important that you give precise information about the location and nature of the danger. The danger may be something as simple as a leaning boundary wall or loose slates falling onto the highway. Our Building Control surveyors will investigate the report and, if necessary, work with the building owner to make it safe.

Email building.control@iow.gov.uk to report a dangerous structure.
