Environmental Permit How Long Will The Application Take?
To answer the question, environmental permit how long will it take? we need to consider the current EA (Environment Agency) backlog after the 2020/21 pandemic. The EA states 3 months for standard rules and 4 months for a bespoke waste permit. However you can easily double these times given the backlog. I have applications from January 2021 that haven’t even yet been acknowledged by the EA. So if you are planning to apply for a permit, make sure you allow plenty of time for your business to be legal.
