Charnwood Borough Council Bonfire Information

TEMPORARY BAN ON BONFIRES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

In order to protect the safety of members of the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to temporarily ban bonfires at allotments.

People with respiratory problems are extremely vulnerable to the effect of smoke inhalation and requiring treatment for this puts them at risk of exposure to Covid-19.

Residents spending more time at home in lockdown may also suffer nuisance from bonfire smoke preventing them spending time in their gardens which is often the only place where they can get exercise, relax or enjoy some fresh air.

We appreciate this will cause inconvenience for plot holders needing to dispose of green waste, but please bear with us and respect the others during this difficult time.

Please do not ignore this instruction

Information from Charnwood Borough Council

The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020

Charnwood Borough Council Environmental Protection team are urging people to show more consideration and to respect the needs of others and the wider community by stopping burning over the next 12 weeks.

People with respiratory problems are extremely vulnerable to the effect of smoke inhalation and requiring treatment for this puts them at risk of exposure to Covid-19.

Residents spending more time at home may also suffer nuisance from bonfire smoke preventing them spending time in their gardens which is often the only place where they can get exercise, relax or enjoy some fresh air.

The Council has used social media postings to ask people not to have garden bonfires at this time and we are also looking to ensure allotment holders are also aware of the message.

Many allotment holders have already adopted a responsible position on bonfires, but reinforcing the message will hopefully prevent any impact on vulnerable or isolating residents.
