The Environmental Safety and Health Team can investigate asbestos issues for commercial and industrial premises, including abandoned and derelict premises.
Where asbestos is considered to pose a risk to public health, Environmental Safety and Health will seek ownership details and then may serve an abatement notice on the owner to require any material containing asbestos cleaned up and disposed of correctly.
Where asbestos issues are not considered to pose a risk to public health, the matter may be assessed in terms of workplace health and safety in premises where health and safety matters are enforced by the local authority. Where health and safety matters are not enforced by the local authority, this would need to be referred to the Health and Safety Executive.
If you live in a council housing and are concerned, you should report it to council housing.
Or if you rent or own your own home, you should contact private sector housing.
