Building site burning

All construction firms and builders who operate within the borough have access to the public health team where they can get advice on how to dispose of waste materials without resorting to burning them on site.

If you want to make a complaint about a bonfire nuisance, please contact the public health team.

The penalties for producing dark smoke from a bonfire on industrial premises can be a fine not exceeding £20,000.
