Smoky Chimneys waste your wood, heat, money and pollute the air.
There is a new rule which requires no visible smoke from urban chimneys in Canterbury.
This rule in the proposed Canterbury Air Regional Plan applies to all properties in clean air zones* (generally the urban areas in the towns of Kaiapoi, Rangiora, Christchurch, Ashburton, Timaru, Geraldine, Waimate) and properties less than 2 hectares outside clean air zones. The new rule allows for only 15 minutes of visible smoke following start up and 5 minutes on reloading.
Here you’ll find everything you need to know about learning how to have a smoke free chimney and a healthier, warmer winter.
