Bonfires on allotments

We understand that you may have allotment waste that is non-compostable and so you may need to have a small bonfire. If this is the case, we ask you to remember the below points.

  • You can only have a bonfire between 1 October and 31 March and after 9am.
  • Make sure the ground and the items to be burnt are dry so as to avoid the fire smoking.
  • Always have a hot, quick fire.
  • Be considerate to neighbours – don’t have a fire when the wind is blowing towards surrounding houses.
  • Your fire must be extinguished by sunset.
  • Never leave your fire unattended.
  • Never leave the allotment site without making sure the fire has been properly extinguished.
