Environmental permitting regulations

If a company wants to carry out processes that could cause emissions to land, air or water they must apply for a permit to do so

You may need an environmental permit if you carry out work that could:

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

You will break the law if you carry out these works without a permit when you should have one.

There are three separate (but linked) systems of pollution control:

  1. Integrated Pollution and Prevention Control (IPPC) covers A(1) installations - these are regulated by the Environment Agency
  2. Local Authority Integrated Pollution and Prevention Control (LA-IPCC) covers A(2) installations - regulated by the Council
  3. Local Authority Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC) covers Part B installations - regulated by the Council
