    Allotments owned by a charity.

    There is a covenent that one day mid week (Tuesday) and every Sunday there are no fires allowed. There are houses all along one side of the plots.

    As a collective we have further decreed that fires can only be lit when the wind carries the smoke in the other direction away from the houses and fires must be attended at all times. You must extinguish the remains when you leave.

    To mitigate that the owners have again supplied a skip for the plotholders to dispose of non green waste free of charge. This also happened last year.

    No specific rules on mine, but there is a set of recommendations (which basically amount to "be considerate of others and don't cause a nuisance").

    I think it's only allowed an hour before sunset here. I only " think" as I have totally banned my husband from having fires after the aerosol incident followed by a trip to casualty a few years ago.
    I quite like the smell of Autumn bonfires, but there are always idiots like the stupid ******* who insists on burning dead chickens. The smell of burning feathers is vile. Eventually there will be a total ban here caused by the inconsiderate idiots ( here that seems to be mainly composed of the older "all mouth and trousers" brigade).

    I'm quite sure you have, I have asked the same question on 3 different facebook forums and here to see what information I get as the council has a Core Value or policy of PRIDE and part of P is

    Fires on Allotments-pride-no-decision-about-me-without-me.jpg

    And there has been no consultation, we found out about the draft policy document by chance just before our annual meeting as we added fires to any other business as no discussion with the site reps for the 37 sites and 2,500 plot holders had taken place.

    I'm currently waiting for a reply from my local councillor as I want to take the council to task about it and want alternatives which I'm getting from the answers to my questions on the forums.

    Ditto, when I was handed the plot we were told only when the wind is in the North or North East as no nearby houses in that direction.
