Chimney Breast Removals


Since the 1960s coal and gas fires have become less fashionable and have been largely replaced by central heating. The removal of disused chimney breasts can create additional floor space and larger living areas, especially in bedrooms.

The preferred option is to remove the stack fully. Alternatively, part of the stack may be retained. This guidance leaflet provides advice on how to undertake this simple project. Advice Sheet BC11 shows how to get the necessary consent via a building notice.
