Lucy, A smoking chimney would be very noticeable in most streets showing high compliance by residents. This extract was hidden away on the council website:- Chimney smoke
Can I use the fireplace in my house?
Yes, but only if you use 'smokeless' fuel. The London Borough of Ealing is a smoke control area. Under the Clean Air Act 1993, it is an offence to emit smoke from a chimney by burning wood or ordinary coal.

Is it an offence to emit smoke from chimneys?
Yes, under the Clean Air Act 1993, it is an offence to emit smoke from any chimney for domestic or commercial use. Any person emitting smoke from a chimney can be prosecuted and may be fined up to 1000. It is also an offence to emit dark smoke from any chimney, (dark smoke is determined by comparing the colour with shades on a chart used by environmental health officers'). Any person emitting dark smoke may be fined up to 1000 if emitted from a private dwelling or 5000 if from commercial and industrial premises.
