There are no local bye-laws against lighting bonfires. Neither East Suffolk District Council or Ipswich Borough have a by-law preventing the lighting of bonfires either.

However East Suffolk District Council has some helpful advice in the leaflet attached below for residents who wish to burn their rubbish and guard against neighbours being troubled. It also includes details of how to make a complaint to them if there is a regular nuisance.
