Permit Application

Every environmental permit application requires a large number of supporting documents and surveys. These include environmental risk assessments (H1) and an environmental management system (EMS) furthermore, these need to be accompany the permit application forms themselves. Site condition reports (SCR’s) and baseline surveys help to determine the state of your installation at the beginning of the application. Finally, when the operation is closed it is clear what impact you have had on the environment during the life of the permit. We can help with all aspects of the application process. Including reports and surveys including scoping the application with the appropriate regulator. Furthermore, Paul Downing & Associates determine a programme of activity to ensure that your application has every chance of success. Our consultants will support you through the application and post application phases.

Contact us for a discussion on the EP Regs 2016 and if it applies to your business. Because it is not always easy or clear to decipher the regulations.

After several failed attempts trying to deal with the EA ourselves, we eventually employed Paul to complete our ELV permit transfer from a previous site owner. His consultancy service was professional and resulted in the Environment Agency completing a successful transfer of ownership from the previous owner to us.
