Report an issue with bonfires

Garden waste can be burnt in gardens providing smoke nuisance is not caused to the inhabitants of the neighbourhood. Read the code of practice on having a garden bonfire.

We can issue an ‘abatement notice’ asking for this to stop, if a neighbour’s bonfire is causing a nuisance. A bonfire must happen frequently to be considered a nuisance. Your neighbour can be fined up to £5,000 if they don’t stick to the notice.
