Scottish Government Consultation

The Scottish Government are taking forward a public consultation on the use and regulation of fireworks in Scotland. The consultation is now live and will run for a period 14 weeks, closing on Monday 13th May.

During the consultation the Scottish Government will seek views on how people use and enjoy fireworks, the impact they have on people and communities across Scotland, as well as their impact on animals. It is also seeking views on the sale of fireworks to the general public, and ideas on what action can be taken to ensure fireworks continue to be enjoyed safely and responsibly. 

Alongside the consultation SG will be running a series of engagement events to create opportunities for members of the public, alongside local partners, to deliberate on the key issues and discuss with others what could be done going forward. Two fireworks consultation events (afternoon or evening) will take place in Stornoway. The details of the events are:
