Firework Consultation by East Suffolk Council

East Suffolk Council would like your views on whether the rules for firework displays on council-owned land should be reconsidered.

As part of their responsibility to protect East Suffolk’s communities, animals and environment, East Suffolk Council are carrying out a review into firework displays on council-owned land and have launched a new consultation to better understand how residents feel about them.

Firework displays are enjoyed by many, however the noise associated with loud fireworks can cause a great deal of distress to some people as well as pets, farm animals and wildlife.

Fireworks also have an impact on the environment, with the potential to contribute to air quality issues and the associated waste and falling debris leading to unnecessary litter which can cause direct harm to livestock and wildlife.

Have your say on the East Suffolk Council website.

The consultation closes 20th May 2022.
