By February 2021 bagged house coal will no longer be available for sale, and by 2023 loose house coal that is delivered direct will no longer be available.
- Wet wood will be phased out from February 2021. This is only for sales below two cubic metres, for amounts above this it will still be sold with advice on how to properly dry the wood for burning.
- Solid fuel products that remain on sale will require the manufactures to provide proof of a low sulphur content and minimal smoke emissions. Smokeless coal will remain on sale as long as it meets the new regulations.
