seen today the governments latest witch hunt seems to be people with log burners.

I have a Burley Hollywell 89.1% efficient DEFRA approved stove and live on the edge of a rural village.

personally I cant see how than can stop people from burning whatever they get there hands on. I only burn logs, but my neighbour seems to burn lumps of treated wood and all sorts.

Most of whatís been reported will be impractical to enforce, in the long term only approved stoves will be for sale, but they will still smoke if used badly, the controls on fuel will just ramp up costs and do little to change what finally goes in the stove. But hopefully the legislation will be sufficiently robust to give councils a straightforward and timely process with which to deal with those that use their stoves in a polluting/antisocial manner.
Though evennif the legislation exists it will still need councils to enforce it and in the absence of additional funding or the ability to keep revenues from fines, i donít see much ever being done other than some councils imposing clean air zones.
