Smoke Control Zone Extension – Have your Say

From Rushcliffe Borough Council:

Residents and businesses have just under two weeks left to share their views on a proposal to expand an existing Smoke Control Area to cover all of Rushcliffe.”

RBC are considering revoking their existing Smoke Control Order in West Bridgford and Edwalton and replacing this with a single order, covering the whole of the Borough

In a smoke control area, it is an offence to emit smoke from a chimney of a building. Correctly seasoned wood, timber or logs should only be burnt in a Defra approved appliance.

Authorised fuels such as ‘smokeless’ fuels must be used in any other appliances that are not Defra approved.

Residents have until Tuesday March 12 to submit their views in a public consultation.
