Solid fuel and wood burning appliances

Whilst we can appreciate that solid fuel or wood burning appliances may seem like a good option, i.e. free heat, we can not allow you to install these.

If you burn the wrong type of fuel, you and your neighbours could be at risk from chimney fires.

If you burn non approved type of fuel, you will be in breach of the building regulations and the Clean Air Act.

If you fit an appliance without our permission and do not inform us about it, we will not be able to maintain it to a safe and efficient standard as required under our duty of care, section 3 Health and Safety at work act 1974.
