Smoke Control Areas

Under the Clean Air Act 1993 certain districts within Sefton have been declared Smoke Control Areas.

Within these areas there is a restriction on the types of fuel that may be burnt. This restriction only applies to the smoke produced from chimneys and does not apply to bonfires.

To find out if you are in a Smoke Control Area, please use the address search below or alternatively you can use Sefton maps.
