Dangerous structures What action will we take? If it is considered that a building is dangerous Trafford Council may take immediate action necessary to remove the danger. Such action may involve temporary road closure, barricading, shoring, scaffolding, repairs or demolition. Where the building is not immediately dangerous, the owner may receive a letter requiring the property to be made safe within a stated time. It may be possible to discuss a dangerous building with its owner in order to resolve the matter quickly without the Council instructing work on a private property.
