Fire and BBQ ban continues on National Trust Land
Please note that The National Trust has confirmed that it is continuing its ban on all BBQs and fires, probably for all of September 2022.
A reminder that the Hive and Cogden beach areas are also no-go areas for open fires and barbecues under a Dorset Council Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPOs) which came into force on 1 July that prevents people lighting fires, including BBQs, fireworks, lanterns, and campfires, in many public areas across Dorset.
Dorset Council is working with Forestry England and Dorset and Wiltshire Fire service to protect countryside area including heathlands, forests, and coastlines from the devastation that unattended naked flames can cause.
