Environmental permitting

You may need an Environmental Permit if you are creating emissions from certain industrial processes.

Environmental Permitting

The Council and the Environment Agency have power to control emissions to the environment from a large number of industrial installations. This means that a permit is required before they can operate, which explains how they will minimise pollution to protect the environment and people's health.

Operators of large installations (known as A1 processes) will generally be controlled by the Environment Agency. Examples of these types of process are power stations and chemical works.

Small and medium sized processes (known as A2 and B processes) are controlled by the council. These include waste oil burners, petrol filling stations and dry cleaners.
