When a new heating appliance is to be installed, in some circumstances, it is necessary to obtain approval for the height of the chimney to be used in conjunction with the appliance.
The Clean Air Act 1993 makes it an offence to cause or knowingly permit a furnace to be used to:
unless the height of the chimney has been approved by the Council and any conditions attached to approval adhered to.
In order to apply for a chimney height approval you must complete and application form and submit this to the Council's Environmental Protection Team. The application for chimney height approval must contain adequate information to enable the necessary calculations to be carried out. Please contact the Team if you need to submit an application.
The Council will give a written decision on the application within 28 days of it's receipt, unless it is agreed in writing between us and the applicant that a longer period is allowed. If we fail to deal with the application within this time period, then approval, without qualification or condition, is automatically given.
If you require any assistance please contact us.
