Find out if your property is in a smoke control area

What are smoke control areas?

Many parts of the UK are smoke control areas where you cannot emit smoke from a chimney unless you're burning an authorised fuel or using 'exempt appliances', for example burners or stoves.

You must not buy an unauthorised fuel for use in a smoke control area, unless it is to be used in an exempt appliance.

You can be fined up to £1,000 if you break the rules.

Do you live in a smoke control area?
