Please have a thought for your neighbours on sunny days in the garden.

There are no bye-laws to prohibit bonfires in the Mid Sussex area, but the Environmental Protection Team are able to investigate any bonfires which are causing a nuisance by excess smoke, especially if they occur regularly. You can call the Environmental Protection Team on 01444 477292 or email The guidelines Mid Sussex District Council publish about bonfire etiquette are as follows:-
Please avoid burning at weekends and on Bank Holidays, or other times when your neighbours may want to enjoy their gardens. Site the bonfire so that it causes least disturbance to your neighbours, this may include taking into account the wind direction. Only burn dry material, this will reduce the amount of smoke produced.
