Waste Licence Applications

Paul Downing

If you need to apply for a waste licence or environmental permit from the Environment Agency, we can help.

Paul Downing & Associates have helped many waste businesses apply for and successfully achieve the relevant waste licence for their business.

The process of applying for a waste licence for a transfer station or waste site is not straight forward. The process is very similar to that of a planning application. There are several risk assessments and supporting documents that need to be submitted. The most complicated of these is the fire prevention plan, which therefore has to follow the fire prevention guidance. This is issued by the Environment Agency. Also, no permit or licence can be granted unless the fire prevention plan is approved first.

The process of applying for a waste licence however, can therefore take up to a year. This depends on the complexity of the business and the proximity of any nearby sensitive receptors for instance. Nearby SSSI’s or AONB’s will always make the process more difficult.

We can help with ELV Permits, waste transfer station licences, aggregate crushing and grading licences. In addition, we also help with hazardous waste and asbestos waste transfer station licences.
