Unauthorised Demolition of 79-85 High Street, Ramsgate
hanet District Council Building Control and Planning Enforcement officers were called out to 79-85 High Street Ramsgate this morning following reports that an unauthorised demolition was taking place. It is a criminal offence for any person to carry out the demolition of buildings within conservation areas without valid planning permission. The council are actively continuing with enforcement proceedings and are seeking legal advice on whether there are grounds for prosecution. We have reported the method of demolition to the Health and Safety Executive, and the unauthorised closure of the road to Kent Highways Services.
