Smoke control areas

Smoke damages our local air quality and is harmful to everyone's health. We use smoke control areas to reduce the amount of harmful smoke that is released from chimneys.

What you can burn

The government website explains what the smoke control rules are, including:

  • what you can burn
  • exempt appliances
  • outdoor fires and ovens
  • bonfires
