Smoke control areas

What is a smoke control area?

A smoke control area is an area of land declared under an order to be smoke free. This means that only authorised fuels can be burnt on fireplaces within the smoke control area.

It does not cover bonfires, barbeques or chimineas. These are permitted but must not cause a statutory nuisance. For further information relating to statutory nuisance powers please click here.
