If you are aware of a public or privately owned building or structure in Sheffield that could pose a potential hazard you can report it to us. 

We will carry out an inspection and take any necessary action to sort the problem out.  Examples of incidents that may cause a hazard to the public or their property are:

  • badly maintained boundary or retaining walls adjacent to a general public right of way
  • buildings with loose slates that may fall into the street
  • unoccupied premises that may have become unsafe due to vandalism
  • trees which may have become unsafe due to adverse weather conditions

However, we don’t deal with everything that is unsafe, for example:

  • timber fences
  • domestic garden sheds
  • external parts of a building or structure that would fall into private rear gardens.

Urgent out of hours issues

If you have an urgent issue regarding the safety of a structure and this is outside of our normal working hours please call 999.
