There is something very satisfying about creating and sitting round your own campfire but as with anything it has it’s rules and regulations. In the UK there are several Outdoor Fire Laws that are put in place for safety reasons. If you are having a fire in your garden there are no laws against it but there are for the nuisance that they can cause. You could be fined if you light a fire and allow the smoke to drift across a road and become a danger to traffic, you can’t get rid of household waste if it will cause pollution or harm peoples health, your council can issue an ‘abatement notice’ if a neighbours bonfire is causing a nuisance (a bonfire must happen frequently to be considered a nuisance) – they can be fined up to £5,000 if they don’t stick to their notice).
