There has been an upsurge in complaints about household wood burning across Camden and therefore we would like to remind all residents that it is illegal to burn wood or coal in open fireplaces and in many wood-burning stoves.
Air pollution is a major public health issue in Camden, with most of the borough exceeding World Health Organisation limits for particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Wood burning is a major source of PM2.5 and affects lung function in children and the elderly, causing and worsening health conditions such as asthma.
Camden is a designated Smoke Control Area to help protect the health of residents. This designation gives the local authority powers to issue fines of up to £1,000 if wood or coal is burned in open fireplaces or in unauthorised wood burning stoves.
