Lanterns, Balloons and Fireworks

Closes 12 Feb 2023

Opened 12 Jan 2023


The release of sky lanterns is causing a major impact on the environment and a  danger to human and animal life due to wild fires.  Over 188 Councils have already banned the release of sky lanterns from their land, including neighbouring authorities such as Essex County Council and the London Borough of Redbridge.

There are similar risks associated with the outdoor release of helium balloons, and unauthorised fireworks displays.

We would like to hear your views on how Havering Council can help tackle these important issues.
