What is this report for?
Some consent authorities will ask for a demolition report to be prepared prior to the subject building being demolished. The demolition report seeks to provide a record of the existing building prior to it being demolished or substantially altered.
What is in this report?
A brief history of the property is researched. This history entails research on previous development application relating to the property in order to track when changes were made as well as extensions and additions etc. It also traces the subdivision pattern in the local area. It requires a measured drawing of the floor plans of the building to show its current state and photographs of the building marked up by number on the floor plan or the survey plan as provided.
Why do I need this report?
You will only need this report if the consent authority requested it.
When do I need this report?
A demolition report is usually required after Development Application approval has been received by the applicant and prior to a Construction Certificate being granted.
