Outdoor pizza oven

Does anyone know if we can have these in Central chch? I have looked at the council and ecan websites and it looks ok but had a nagging thought that they weren't allowed.
Maybe it's changed?
Thanks for any advice

Not allowed in Chch.

i understand that the ongoing review of ecan regulation proposed to specificly exempt outdoor cooking from the restrictions, ergo in due course pizza ovens will be allowed.

I agree they exist, but that does not make them approved.

5m away from boundary & buildings, i don't have a tiny section, but there would only be a couple of places I could put one, middle of my lawn, middle my front driveway

"Heaters and cookers that burn solid fuel or oil and
burn with a yellow flame, such as braziers, ambient
outdoor fires, chimineas and pizza ovens, are not
allowed either."

Just class it as a BBQ and you will be fine. BBQs and Hangis are legal.

We only burn high quality, bone dry hardwood in ours, never had any smoke, so no, this one does no harm, is compliant (was built by qualified tradesmen) and does less damage to the environment than the neighbours 40 year old wetback burner.
