Do I need a permit?

It depends on what your industrial process is and the volumes/scale involved. Call us on 01428 768 087 for more information or drop us an email with any questions you may have.

How long will it take to get my environmental permit?

A standard rules permit will take approximately 5-7 months from submission. A bespoke permit will take a few months more.

Can I apply myself?

If you are familiar with the process then yes. However if you have not made an application before, the array of forms and supporting surveys required is quite overwhelming

Will I be guaranteed to get my permit?

In a nutshell, no. Treat a permit application similar to a planning application – there is no guarantee.

Why is a permit application so complicated?

There are several supporting surveys that need to be submitted with an application depending on your industry type and geographical setting.

  • Contaminated Land Reports
  • Documented Management Procedures
  • Risk Assessments
  • Fire Prevention Plans
  • WAMITAB Registration
  • Drainage Plans
  • Noise Surveys
  • Air Quality surveys
  • Application Forms

If you are storing combustible waste then a fire prevention plan is the most difficult to produce & comply with
