You must not keep inflammable materials, liquids or gases in the property.
Liquid Petroleum Gas
The use and storage of liquid petroleum gas in flats and maisonettes is banned by the council.
This form of heating can also be dangerous and can also be a major source of condensation. The council advises that you do not have or use paraffin heaters in your home.
If you do wish to use a paraffin heater, it should conform to British Safety Regulations BS3300 and carry the BSI kite mark.
Heaters should be sited where they cannot be knocked over or are in a draught. They should never be positioned in escape routes such as entrance lobbies or hallways.
