Does anyone know of any regulations in Harringey preventing us from installing a wood burner with an external flue?
We are end of terrace and the flue will be out the side of the property. No views will be distorted and we are not in a conservation area.
Since the Smokeless Zone came in in the 60s it is illegal to burn wood or 'dirty' coal for domestic heating etc. As NeilT says, you would have to use smokeless fuel, there are many brands available including smokeless zero C02 (as claimed) coal. Have you not got an existing chimney flue you can use or have lined?.

Looking at DEFRA's website, that's only if you don't have an exempt burner. Otherwise you can burn wood that ideally contains less than 20% moisture
I put a multi-fuel stove in our old flat, luckily there was a tree surgeon's yard down the road from us and he would deliver 'seasoned' ready-cut wood from different trees. I'd love to put one where we live now but my wife won't let me, says it's too much mess.
