Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A MANCH­ESTER coun­cil spokesman said: “As part of an ex­ten­sive re­view of at-risk build­ings in the North­ern Quar­ter, build­ing con­trol of­fi­cers re­quested ac­cess to the pri­vate site.

“Fol­low­ing a visit, of­fi­cers as­sessed the build­ing as im­mi­nently at risk of col­lapse and a for­mal no­tice was im­me­di­ately served in­form­ing the owner that he must act at the prop­erty as quickly as pos­si­ble.

“This will un­for­tu­nately likely re­quire de­mo­li­tion.

“If the owner does not com­ply in a timely man­ner, the coun­cil will be forced to step in to act on the owner’s be­half. Fol­low­ing any de­mo­li­tion, the owner will be re­quired to re­place the prop­erty with a sim­i­lar struc­ture.”
