What are rules on garden fires?

Have your say

Could any readers enlighten me of rules and regulations concerning fires on allotments.

My daughter has an allotment on Hagg Lane and from time to time we need to dispose of accumulated hedge cuttings etc. The obvious solution is to burn them.

Recently I lit a fire (the first in six months) and shortly afterwards received a visit from a resident complaining about smoke. It was actually travelling away from the houses and the person whose garden backs on to my daughter’s allotment also had a fire in his garden.

I challenged the complainant as to whether his neighbour would also be receiving a complaint without receiving a satisfactory reply.
