Bonfire problems

Bothered by smoke, dust or smells

We have produced a leaflet your neighbour, your choice.

This explains your options for dealing with neighbour complaints.

If you are affected by smoke, dust, or smells from domestic or commercial premises, please contact us.

What action will the council take?

We aim to give the most suitable response to each complaint. 

In most cases a letter is all that is needed, if this doesn't work our officers will investigate to see if legal action is required. This is done using statutory nuisance powers.

See our guide: What is a statutory nuisance?

If the fire is dangerous call the Police / Fire Brigade on 999
