A BID to reverse a restriction of the lighting of bonfires on Exmouth's 390 allotments will be debated on Monday.
Exmouth Allotment Association has asked town councillors at the General Purposes and Regeneration Committee to consider revising the policy relating to the allotments on Hamilton Lane and Pound Lane.
Currently the policy allows the lighting of bonfires from October 1 to February 28.
The current restrictions, say the Association, result in a lot of bonfires on the first day when bonfires are allowed.

Current Government advice is that diseased material should not be taken off site but burnt quickly.
The Association requests allowing burnings al year round but still on restricted days.
