Res­i­dents seek­ing to in­stall a low emis­sion wood burn­ers had un­til Oc­to­ber 31 to apply for a Solid Fuel Heater con­sent. From now, peo­ple with a wood burner more than 15 years old, can only apply to in­stall an ul­tra-low emis­sion wood burner, fol­low­ing an ECan de­ci­sion to phase out old style wood burn­ers in the Ash­bur­ton Clear Air Zone. Those with a con­sent will have one year to be­gin work to in­stall their low emis­sion wood burner, and an­other year to com­pete the work.
