A Demolition Notice is used to tell residents that the council is planning to demolish their home in the future. It also explains why this is necessary - in this case to build the more and better homes the borough needs and to confirm legally the November Cabinet decision to partially regenerate the estate. Demolition Notices are issued in two stages:
Initial Demolition Notices are issued to residents when the local authority is planning to demolish their property within the next seven years but has not yet established when this will happen. It does not mean that demolition work is about to start.
Final Demolition Notices are issued to residents when the local authority has set a date for the demolition to happen. This notice can only be issued after planning permission has been granted. No demolition can happen until this Notice is issued.
