Possibly better to use the same site than choosing a different one every
time. From a damage POV I mean....

I remember an interesting day out in Kent looking at the ancient woodlands
within which there were numerous charcoal burning sites. Didn't seem to
have done much harm in the long run and it went on for years with the
burners habitually returning to the same sites time after time. Mark

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.
