COUNCIL REMINDS RESIDENTS THAT ‘SMOKY’ COAL BAN OPERATING IN LETTERKENNY

first_imgThere is a smoky coal ban in operation in Letterkenny.Following an extended period of warmer weather we are now, once again, entering the heating season, Donegal County Council is reminding householders in the Letterkenny and environs area that there is a ban on the burning of “Smoky” Coal. Such is the importance of delivering cleaner air to our communities, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Alan Kelly T.D. has recently outlined plans to extend the health benefits of the smoky coal ban nationwide.Since May 2013 householders in Letterkenny have played their part by only using smokeless fuels. These actions have resulted in improved air quality in Letterkenny for all those living, working and visiting the town.The council is again asking that households continue to make cleaner fuel choices by only burning smokeless fuels such as; smokeless coal, remember, bags must be clearly labelled smokeless coal,wood, kindling, fire logs, fire starter logs, turf or turf products.It is the obligation of the householder to comply with the smoky coal ban when burning fuel. If as a householder you are unsure which is the best product for you, you should discuss the many different types of smokeless fuels that are available with your local coal merchant.The other key part of this legislation is that coal retailers and coal merchants are not permitted to market, sell or distribute smoky coal inside the ban area. Donegal County Council is currently involved in multi-agency enforcement activities in conjunction with Revenue on the coal retail / merchant sector. Part of these enforcement activities also involves the inspection of delivery lorries. New legislation has also made provision for fixed penalty notices for breaches of the legislation within the coal sector ranging from €250 – €1,000. It is important to remember that the sole purpose of this law is to deliver cleaner air. It is only through the continued support of householders, coal retailers and merchants that improvements in air quality will continue.Donegal County Council encourages members of the public to report instances of the flouting of the law, which will result in enforcement action being taken by the Council.COUNCIL REMINDS RESIDENTS THAT ‘SMOKY’ COAL BAN OPERATING IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: November 5th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:councilletterkennysmoky coal banlast_img read more
