Summer BBQ Restrictions

AND BBQ Restriction in the CampoThe Junta de Andalucía issued a reminded that between the 1st of June and the 15th of October BBQ are forbidden in the countryside. This includes public areas set aside for such things.

But it is not just BBQs but any kind of fire, including burning branches etc on farms, as well as even driving into the mountains and forests because of the danger of the heat from an exhaust pipe setting fire to dry grass.

There are exceptions but these require a special permit from the provincial representative of the Consejería de Agricultura, Ganadería, Pesca y Desarrollo Sostenible. These exceptions are: rural accommodation for tourists, rural restaurants (out in the sticks) and summer camps for children, for example.

As for exceptions concerning driving into the campo, these include access tracks for rural dwellings, organised, green-tourism outings, and of course, emergency vehicles.
