Indoor fire consultation

Auckland residents with a point-of-view on the use of indoor domestic fires have until March 27 to comment on a draft Auckland Council bylaw.

The Air Quality Bylaw for Indoor Domestic Fires proposes to manage what can be burned in indoor fires such as wet wood, tanalised wood and some types of coal.

It also identifies where in Auckland the rules will apply and determines what type of new wood burners can be installed for large-lot urban properties.

Regulatory Committee chair Councillor Linda Cooper says there was a strong community message in 2014 that people did not want a ban on open fires, so it is pleasing that environmental improvements since then have allowed Council to present a new draft bylaw proposing alternative ways to reduce the impact of household fires on the region’s air quality.
