Report a bonfire nuisance

Bonfires can be considered a nuisance if it affects people or property. It can cause harm and can be unpleasant if the smoke is dark. Although it is not against the law to have the occasional bonfire, it could be intrusive and dangerous.

Before making a formal complaint we advise you to speak to the person having the bonfire to resolve the issue. It may be that they are not aware that they are causing a nuisance so talking to them would be the first step. If there is no success in solving the problem then we may be able to help.
