Closed petition Ban the use of fireworks in residential areas.

To ban the use of fireworks in residential areas, a fine of £5,000 should be applied to anyone caught breaking the law.

More details

Fireworks can cause personal harm or even death in the hands of untrained users. In residential areas the loud noise can cause reverb, distress to the elderly as well as many animals and babies.

It's time to make a change and encourage the public to attend organised, licensed and insured events which are safe and available to those who want to enjoy Fireworks rather than those who don't or are in a situation in their own home where Fireworks are not welcome. Let's make this safe and fair to all.
