Rules for do­mes­tic fires in Auck­land:

A do­mes­tic fire must be op­er­ated with­out caus­ing an ex­ces­sive amount of smoke, nor have the smoke cross the prop­erty bound­ary. Only dry, un­treated wood can be used. It is pro­hib­ited to use the fire­place in­side your home to burn rub­bish

Wood burn­ers must com­ply with the NES and ACRP: ALW rules

A list of com­pli­ant wood burn­ers is avail­able from the Min­istry for the En­vi­ron­ment’s web­site mfe.govt.nz

The type of do­mes­tic fire you can in­stall de­pends on the size of your sec­tion/prop­erty and which air qual­ity man­age­ment area your prop­erty is in. For ex­am­ple, a prop­erty in the ur­ban area on less that 2ha of land can only have a fire that has a par­ti­cle emis­sion rate of less than 1.5g/kg and a ther­mal ef­fi­ciency of at least 65 per cent.
