check and see if your area is covered by the Clean Air Act - ours is and u cant have bonfires without following very strict rules

Have u not googled for info?

Think it depends on your local council, before a certain time i think most dissallow it, possibly due to people having their washing out.
#4
You in smokeless zone (or whatever their called now?).

You just need a nosy neighbour to call the council and you've a big fine coming your way. . .

im asking jeeves at the moment but not come up with anything as yet

ive had a few fires to burn straw to keep rats to a a minimum and it seems someone has complained so just wanted to check out the rules

most built up areas after 6pm but common courtesy would suggest dusk onwards and must not allow smoke to blow across highway for obvious reasons

Not sure, but last time I had one the neighbours called the fire brigade and they came round with the flashing lights and the hoses and put it out.

Statutory Nuisance applies if someone complains regardless of time and whether or not you're in a designated area.

You will be asked to put the fire out - if you don't you will get an Abatement Notice requiring you to do so and may be fined.
