BBQ-free New Forest campaign

The New Forest National Park Authority is calling on retailers across the Forest to remove disposable barbecues from sale and for a continued ban on fires and barbecues in the open countryside of the National Park.

The move follows large numbers of disposable barbecues being used while the New Forest is at extreme risk of fire. Multiple fires have had to be put out in recent weeks and numerous areas of scorched earth have been left across the protected habitats when a fire warning is still in place.

Following our plea, many shops and outlets in and around the New Forest have taken disposable BBQs off sale.

Get involved

We still need your help to make the whole of the National Park BBQ-free. Please ask your local store to stop selling disposable BBQs and to display the poster shown below. If you’re a retailer, please let us know you’re supporting our campaign by emailing communications@newforestnpa.gov.uk, and we’ll add your name to the list.
