I am finding as my life progresses, common sense is disappearing at a frantic 
rate!
We are having to adhere to rules & regulations that are not interpreted with 
common sense.

In "the old days" with woodland felling for hardwood pulp we had any number 
of fires and other than not burning branch overhang (by suitable placement) I 
doubt that a campfire would have any significance.  13 hectares?  On the 
assumption that there would only be a few fire sites, which unless they are 
going to smelt iron ore will be very small, and that wildlife is generally 
not suicidal I doubt that there would be any impact.
I assume it is broadleaf woodland so no risk of Rhizina undulata.
I would prescribe a condition requiring common sense!

I am dealing with a planning application for limited camping in a mature wood 
of 13 hectares. 

Part of use will be small fires under or close to tree canopies by campers 
for cooking and warmth at night (not bonfires)

 

Has anyone any experience on restrictions imposed on such fires by planners? 

On the face of it harmless but smoke could affect birds and bats.

 

Regards
