Consultation description

We are seeking evidence and data on the use of solid fuels such as house coal, smokeless coal, manufactured solid fuels and wet wood for domestic heating.

We are interested in the effect on householders of shifting from burning the more polluting fuels such as house coal and wet wood, towards less polluting fuels such as low sulphur smokeless fuels and dry wood.

We are also interested in the effect on businesses, for example on those selling stoves, fuels or providing maintenance services for whom domestic burning forms an integral part of their business.

Your responses will feed into the government’s Clean Air Strategy which will be published for consultation in 2018. This will set out how we will work towards our international commitments and continue to deliver air quality improvements in the UK.
