Environmental problems Smoke and fire

Garden bonfires

Last updated 3.31pm, Wednesday 1 April

During these times it is far more likely that the smoke from any bonfires will impact neighbours who are:

  • abiding by Government advice to stay at home
  • self-isolating due to existing health problems 
  • key workers on downtime


Please do not burn household waste.  Get rid of your rubbish responsibly instead.

If a fire is dangerous, phone 999.

Most neighbours will be considerate if you explain that a fire is causing a problem. 

But if it keeps happening, report it to us as an air pollution problem:
