The Initial Demolition Notice does not mean that demolition is about to start. Demolition can only start after planning permission has been granted AND after a Final Demolition Notice has been issued. The Final Demolition Notice will only be issued once the Council has a clear programme and timetable for the scheme and it is known that the property will be demolished within 2 years. We don’t expect any demolition to start until 2019 at the earliest.
