Environmental Permits

We are responsible for two pollution control regulatory regimes under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016.

The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 came into force on 1st January 2017. There have been no major changes as a result of these new regulations, however, they do revoke the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) 2007 (and amendments) as well as the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010.

You must hold an environmental permit from your Local Authority if you either:

  • Carry out Part A(2) or Part B activities
  • Run a Part A(2) of Part B installation or mobile plant

You need a Part A(2) permit for the following activities:

  • Refining gas
  • Metal works, e.g. producing pig iron or steel, casting ferrous metal, operating forge hammers or applying fused metal coatings
  • Melting non-ferrous metals
  • Surface treating metals and plastic materials
  • Grinding cement clinker or metallurgical slag

  • Ceramic product manufacturing, including roof tiles and bricks
  • Non-hazardous or animal waste incineration
