  • There are many smoke control areas within the UK where you cannot emit smoke from a chimney unless you are burning an authorised fuel or using exempt appliances.
  • If you break the smoke control rules, you can be fined £1,000.
  • You can find out if you live in a smoke control area by contacting the environmental department of your local council
    • If you live in a smoke control area, you can only burn fuel on the list of authorised fuels or any of the following smokeless fuels including anthracite, semi anthracite, gas or low volatile steam coal.
    • You can use oil or other liquid fuels in specially designed or adapted fireplaces.
    • Kindling can be used but there are different rules in different areas
    • You are allowed garden bonfires in smoke control areas – make sure you follow the rules on bonfires
