Smoke Control Areas (England)
We have been working behind the scenes to produce a list of English Local Authorities and their status as a Smoke Control Area. A SCA will have an impact on the appropriate type of heating fuel to input for solid fuel boilers and open fires, so checking whether a property is within one is an important thing to know.
Energy Assessors should double-check on the both County Council and District Council listings for the SCA. In many cases, the County-level will not include the areas which their District areas hold.
Quidos has worked diligently to produce as accurate a listing as possible, however, there might still be mistakes within the data. We would advise all Energy Assessors to undertake their own checks if in doubt.
The Excel spreadsheet containing this data can be found in the ‘Technical Information’ section under Domestic Energy Assessment in iQ-Energy.
