What Is the law regarding garden chimnay, I have a small chimnay

This answer was rated:

What Is the law regarding garden chimnay, I have a small chimnay fire in the garden and have been burning small pieces of wood on it and the old neighbours who complain about everything are complaining about it, are they legal to use
Thank you for your question.

Yes, barbecues and chimineas are legal even in smoke control areas, so they can be used outside. However, if yours was causing a nuisance, say by belching large amounts of smoke in their direction they could action that as being a nuisance. However, reasonable use with no discernible affect on them is entirely permissible.

Happy to discuss further but I don't think you have a problem here.

Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
