Environmental Permitting

At WPS Compliance Consulting we love to make a difference by helping our clients to minimise the impact their operations have on the environment.

We will primarily keep you legal – in relation to both Environmental Law and Environmental Permit requirements (whether Environment Agency, or Local Authority issued).

Our Environmental Permitting Services

When do I need a Permit?

Depending on the activity and pollution risk, a permit application may be required to the Environment Agency or the Local Authority. You may need an environmental permit if you do an activity that could:

  • pollute the air, water or land
  • increase flood risk
  • adversely affect land drainage

 

An environmental permit is required if you operate any of the following:

  • an ‘installation’ – an industrial facility, manufacturer or other business that produces potentially harmful substances, for example a landfill site, a large chicken farm, a food factory, a furniture factory, a dry cleaners, a petrol station
  • a waste operation – a site where waste is recycled, stored, treated or disposed of
  • a mining waste operation – a site which manages waste produced from mines or quarries
  • a medium combustion plant or specified generator
  • a small waste incineration plant – where certain types and quantities of waste are burned
  • mobile plant – plant that’s designed to move or be moved, for example a machine that’s moved onto a site to clean contaminated soil
  • a solvent emission activity – releasing organic solvents directly or indirectly into the air
