EA Permits (Environment Agency Permits)

EA Permits

We can help you apply for EA Permits (Environment Agency Permits) relating to industrial processes and waste management activities. Check if you are regulated under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016.

Paul Downing & Associates has a track record of helping clients apply for and obtain the EA Permits required. Our clients are from either, waste management, installations, water discharge, flood defence or other regulated activity under the EP regs 2016. Call us if you are unsure if these regs apply to you. We help with pre-application queries because of the complexity of the process. The EA also provide this as a chargeable service. We look for nearby sensitive areas and habitats and any other complicating factors. Call us for more advice on pre-applications.

If you require a standard rules or bespoke permit to legally operate your waste management activity, then we can help you apply for the correct EA permits to the Environment Agency. This is required in order to ensure that you are operating legally under UK legislation. The process will take several months and is not dissimilar to a large planning application. There are a large number of supporting documents required to support the application.

Industrial Sectors

We can also advise you on the correct permit to apply for however as it is not always clear. There may be several permits that would be the best suited for your particular activity. Our consultants have experience of working with a broad rang of clients. Paul Downing & Associates have experience in food production, power generation, waste management, end of life vehicles, data management, engineering and manufacturing sectors. Finally, Although appearing  initially different all of these sectors have a few things in common. They all consume raw materials, use water, use energy and produce some form of waste. This is the basis for the requirement of many permits and therefore will be the focus of activity in determining your permit.
