Report a bonfire

Report a bonfire

Before making a formal complaint, try to discuss the problem with your neighbour. They may be unaware that their bonfire is causing a disturbance.

However, if you do not get a positive response, do not feel comfortable speaking to your neighbour, or the problem persists and is regular, you can report it to us.

We will only investigate problems that are a statutory nuisance.

You cannot make an anonymous report to us. We will not share your name or contact details with the person or business you are reporting.  

We will only investigate bonfires that breach our bonfire code of practice.

We will carry out an investigation and take action where possible. If we cannot take action, you may be able to take legal action yourself.
