Installing a new stove, fire, solid fuel burner or boiler
Before installing a solid fuel stove or fire, you should check with the manufacturer or supplier to confirm that the appliance has approval from DEFRA for use within a smoke control area.
Your new appliance should be designed and located so that smoke and fumes are well dispersed. This is particularly important if you intend to emit smoke from a ground floor where the smoke may become a nuisance to your neighbours, we are getting an increasing amount of complaints about this issue.
To ensure that you are not committing an offence you should only burn the designated fuels in these appliances.
