Open fires and wood burning stoves

The use of wood burners and open fires has increased in recent years. The government has produced the guidance to help people with these heating systems to reduce the environmental and health impact.

Please note there are currently no smoke control zones in the Breckland Council area.

Symptoms of very poor burning habits which cause lots of pollution include blackened glass, constant smoke coming out of your chimney, or lots of unburned wood or charcoal left after the stove goes out.

Advice on the procedures to follow when lighting a stove to minimise smoke emissions has been produced by chimney sweeps and can be found on theBurnright website.
