Dangerous Structures and Derelict Sites

Dangerous places and structures are governed by primary legislation, Local Government (Sanitary Services) Act 1964. A dangerous place means an excavation, quarry, pit or well that is or is likely to be dangerous to any person. A dangerous structure means any buildings, wall or other structure of any kind that is or is likely to be dangerous to any person or property.

The Derelict Site Act 1990 places a general duty on owners and occupiers of land including statutory bodies and State Authorities to prevent land from becoming or from continuing to be a derelict site.
