Smoke control areas
Some parts of Cumbria are smoke control areas which mean you cannot emit smoke from a chimney unless you are using an authorised fuel or using 'exempt' appliances. You must not buy an unauthorised fuel for use in a smoke control area, unless it is to be used in an exempt appliance. You can find out more about smoke control areas on the GOV.UK website.
To find if you live in a Smoke Control Area, please use the zoom function on the map below. The area in grey within a red border indicates the Smoke Control Area.
If you think there is an issue with smoke in these areas, you can report it to us.
