Work affecting other land

Please consider how your demolition may affect your neighbours. Dust and noise should be managed to protect this important and ongoing relationship. If the works will encroach on, adversely affect or require access to other land, consent will be required before the works can be carried out. See the Building Commission website for further information.

Asbestos removal

If you are demolishing a structure which has more than 10 square metres of asbestos, a licensed WorkSafe contractor must be used. For further information on asbestos and its safe removal please visit the city's 'Asbestos and hazardous waste' page.

Rat baiting

Prior to approving a demolition permit, a rat-baiting program must be carried out and evidence provided to the City of Subiaco. Baits must be placed in the ceilings, sub-floor spaces and outbuildings at least seven days prior to demolition. For further information on rats and other pests and insects within the city of Subiaco, please visit the city's 'Pest and insect control for residents' page.
