Legislation on Bonfires


SDLP Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has said he is looking at the option of licensing plans for all bonfires in Northern Ireland.

Although there are no laws against having a bonfire there are laws for the nuisance they can cause.

There are also various environmental laws that are currently not enforced in Northern Ireland during the bonfire season.

NI21 is in favour of introducing legislation to ensure that bonfires can be enjoyed in a safe, family friendly manner.
