The scheme recommends that people hole their celebrations within the following tiimes:
• 7.00–9.00pm on Saturday 4 November
• 7.30–8.30pm on Sunday 5 November
Fireworks can be traumatic and distressing for our pets and for people who have PTSD, autism and anxiety.
Councillor Rose Moore, Cabinet Member for a Greener and Safer Chelmsford said: "We understand that people enjoy creating their own firework displays. But, for those who can, we encourage you to consider the benefits of attending a public display. For example, Chelmsford Round Table's charity firework display is back for its 48th year in Admirals Park, with all money raised from the event going back into the local community.
"Of course, we can't stop people releasing fireworks from their gardens; the law permits home displays, and many people are responsible, giving their neighbours plenty of notice. In these cases, we ask that fireworks are released during the "Rocket O'Clock" window to keep disturbance to a minimum.
"Thank you to everyone who continues to support this campaign and is mindful of those who find Bonfire Night distressing."
