Fuel reminder for Pendle smoke-control areas
2:59pm Wednesday 31st October 2012 in News
PENDLE residents who live in Smoke-Control Areas are reminded to check they are using the correct fuel on their open fire, or solid fuel appliance.
Coun John David, who looks after environmental health in Pendle, said: “We have noticed a significant increase in inquiries about using solid fuel. This is down to the increases in gas prices, and possibly because people are more conscious of climate change. If you live in a built-up area, it is probably a Smoke-Control Area, and you must follow certain rules to ensure your chimney isn’t giving off smoke.”
