Environmental Permitting

Industrial processes have the potential to release pollution to air, land and water and cause damage to the environment and human health. For this reason, many industrial processes are required by law to operate in accordance with environmental permits that place conditions on their operation in order to minimise the release of pollutants.

It is an offence under environmental permitting legislation for any person or company to operate a permitted activity without a valid environmental permit.

The industrial activities that are controlled by the Environmental Permitting Regulations are divided into three categories and are regulated by two different bodies.

Part A1 activities - Environment Agency

Larger and more polluting industries, such as landfill sites, incinerators, power stations and metal production and processing, where emissions to land, air and water need to be controlled.

Part A2 activities – Local Authority

Other large but less polluting industries, such as brickworks and foundries, where emissions to land, air and water also need to be controlled.

Part B activities – Local Authority

Industries whose activities have less pollution potential than Part A1 and A2 activities, where emissions to air need to be controlled. Examples are petrol filling stations, dry cleaners and vehicle resprayers.

Guidance

You can find out if you need a permit in The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 which can be found on the government legislation page.

Further general guidance in relation to local authority issued permits can be found in the Local Authority Pollution Control: General Guidance Manual.

Environmental Permit Public Consultations

It is a requirement of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 for us to consult the public on applications for an environmental permit where the application is for a process that is not a dry cleaner, petrol station or mobile plant.

Public consultation in the vast majority of cases will be limited to a public notice posted in the immediate vicinity of the land or property to which the application relates, and notification via this page.

Current consultations

Currently, there are no active public consultations.

Waste Exemptions

Certain waste operations are exempt from the need to hold an environmental permit (formerly a waste management licence). These operations are not unregulated but require those who carry them out to comply with certain rules and not cause harm to the environment.

The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 require most activities that manage or treat waste to have a permit. However, there are some activities that do not - these are called exemptions. Exemptions are waste operations that do not need a permit but do need to be registered.

Most exempt waste operations are registered by the Environment Agency. However, under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, Schedule 2, paragraph 2(2) any T3 and T7 waste exempt operations you need to register with the local authority, not the Environment Agency. These are:

  • T3 – treatment of waste metals and metal alloys by heating for the purposes of removing grease
  • T7 – treatment of waste bricks, tiles and concrete by crushing, grinding or reducing in size

Find a full description of T3 and T7 at Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016.

You should register with North East Derbyshire District Council if your principle place of business is within the councils area.

You can apply using the application form for one of these exemptions. This also gives details of where the completed form should be submitted.
