How far does a boiler flue have to be from a neighbour?

You don’t want to send dangerous gases from your house into your neighbour’s house. The required minimum installation distance for a boiler flue is 600 mm from a neighbouring wall or fence. The minimum advised distance is 300 mm if the flue is situated on the rear garden but facing the boundary. This lessens the chance of creating a “Statutory Nuisance.”
