Changes to air quality regulations for domestic wood burners

This week, on the 7th October, new clean air regulations came into force on the domestic burning of solid wood and fuels in England.

The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/1095) will introduce new measures for cleaner burning of domestic solid wood and other fuels to improve air quality in England. These measures will largely come into force on 1st May 2021 and will apply to all wood burners and stoves used in a domestic setting. The regulations will be staggered to enable current stocks to be utilised and will be enforced by local authorities who will be provided with enforcement powers to ensure compliance, with the ability to issue fixed penalties of £300 for non-compliance.

Park operators should be mindful of these changes as they will likely affect holiday lodges and residential parks which have lodges homes with wood burning stoves installed.

For further help or support please contact our specialist Parks team who will be happy to provide bespoke advice and guidance.

As we move into the school holidays, we are seeing an increase in instructions for removing unauthorised encampments from land. Given the lack of affordable housing, traveller sites and, now, holiday accommodation in hot spot areas, we expect to see a big rise in unauthorised encampments across popular visitor sites.
