Smoke Nuisance and Dark Smoke

Smoke from bonfires and chimneys from neighbouring properties, can affect people's enjoyment of their homes and become a nuisance.

If you are concerned about smoke from nearby properties the Environment & Community Protection Team may be able to help you, however it is worth considering chatting with your neighbour and describing how the problem is affecting you and your family. You may find this difficult, but often people are just not aware that they are causing a problem and are often glad to reach a compromise.

Please always approach these matters carefully if you think your neighbour might react angrily to a complaint and in these cases you may wish to have a discussion with us first.
