The whole of Kirklees is a smoke control zone
. Many wood stoves are not authorised for use here and householders face fines for emitting smoke from them.
However, because the house is in a conservation area and airport zone which is subject to a smoke control zone
, Coloccini has to apply to Newcastle City Council for planning consent.
It's also an offence to sell bituminous coal to anyone living within a smoke control zone
Floors that use passive smoke control are fit with combination fire-smoke dampers at shafts and smoke control zones
to prevent smoke migration.
Either burn leaves on site - when allowed under legislation governing smoke control zones
- or bury within your own garden.
