Environmental Permit Consultants

Paul Downing & Associates are environmental permit consultants based in Hampshire although we work UK wide. We specialise in helping industrial companies apply, vary and comply with environmental permits and other UK environmental legislation. We have worked with many industrial sectors including waste management businesses and transfer stations, food factories, end of life vehicles (ELV) recyclers and metal recycling sites. We have a good records of helping clients apply for and obtain the correct permit for their existing or proposed operation.

We have worked with local authorities and the Environment Agency and have a good working knowledge of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016 which enables us to help you become compliant. Call us for informal advice on your permit application or other environmental related project.

If you require information on your business requirements or have recently had a visit from the EA, then call us first for an informal discussion on how we can help you comply with the legislation pertinent to your business, we always try to help you as best we can without conducting unnecessary surveys or reports unless it is essential to the success of the application.

All of our surveys and reports are scoped to ensure that your permit application stands the best chance of a successful outcome and that it is readily understood and applicable to managing the environmental impacts of your particular business. The Environment Agency will often use our reports as conditions of operation in your final permit, so accurate reporting of the local impacts is of utmost importance when drafting the report.

I found Paul tremendous help in guiding our business through the first year of post 14001 certification. He provided much needed support to our organisation with internal auditing and bespoke training and professional advice on environmental management.
