Smoke and garden bonfires

Newark and Sherwood District Council can investigate complaints from smoke from garden bonfires.

Generally the smoke must affect other people’s premises to such an extent that normal use of those premises is not possible if the council is to take action. For example, smoke entering people’s houses, smoke blowing across gardens and preventing normal use of a garden and smoke affecting people’s washing.
