Chelmsford City Council

Smoke control areas

There are no smoke control areas in the Chelmsford area. There are also no laws or restrictions against having a bonfire in your own garden, although we encourage you to be considerate to your neighbours.

However, we do investigate complaints about smoke from a domestic chimney or bonfire if we consider it to be a statutory nuisance.

If smoke is causing a problem, you can report it to us.
