Smoke control areas

Rossendale was designated as a Smoke Control Area to improve air quality. As a result of this, residents are only allowed to burn authorised fuels in an open fireplace or on an exempt appliance.

Please also see the leaflet Open fires and wood burning stoves- A practical guide

There is also lots of information on the Burn Right website
