Wood burning in cities (possible me vs the man content)
And liverpool say this on their website
” SMOKE CONTROL AREAS
The Clean Air Act 1993 allows Councils to establish smoke control areas which are aimed at improving air quality by burning authorised smokeless fuels, and where the emission of smoke from chimneys is prohibited.
Coal and wood are not authorised smokeless fuels and therefore they can only be burnt in a smoke controlled area if they are used with an exempt heating appliance. Such appliances burn off or ‘eat’ the smoke produced by the fuel. For further information on this subject please contact your local environmental health service.”Posted 4 years ago
Howdy, evening STWers.
So, this is the time of year when I gawp at your wood through envious fingers.
Been thinking about getting a wood burner… But I’m living in Liverpool terraces and no-one else has smoke coming out of their chimneys.
Is there any legislation in place to stop me using a wood fire in the inner (ish) city? Will the man fine my tight butt?

As an asthma sufferer I hate this time of year and all those people who have installed or opened up old fire burning devices!!!
I am old enough to remember the “act” coming in and areas of town being deemed smokeless zones. Young people however are not aware of the “act” and are blundering ahead and installing “burners” or re-establishing old fire places 🙄Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriberHugh Zarst wrote:

Is there any way I can avoid being a peon of E.ON?
Solar panels, solar hot water, wind turbines, switch to another provider…
Burning stuff in built up areas is a bad idea, in the end wood fires are not that clever if you have to buy the wood.Posted 4 years agoMarinMember
That’s not the scouse way camo. Have got a mate near Wavertree High Street with one and also one up near Hope Uni who found his burner in a skip.They’ve had no problem for a few years. Would get one fitted myself but have no chimney alas. Few areas near town there is wood galore avalaible that’s well dried and legal.Posted 4 years ago5thElefantMember

^This. Unless you have access to free wood (or the time and inclination to track down nearly free wood) you’ll find a log burner is an expensive option.Posted 4 years agosoopsMember
These are cracking stoves. Get the solo model though.Posted 4 years ago
