Pollution Control - Part B Authorisation

Also known as:- Emissions

Service Description: The Council is responsible for regulating the pollution to air from certain specified businesses. It does this by drawing up permits or authorisations: documents which allow specified pollutants to be released to the air, providing there is careful and demonstrable control over such releases, and that specified limits aren’t breached.
The documents are kept in a file available for the public to view at no charge, though we may charge for copies to be taken. Both the operator and the Council can change the conditions in the permits/authorisations, and the Council must when technology or new research requires it.
To not comply with the terms of the permit/authorisation is a serious matter and can result in enforcement notices being issued, prosecution or close down depending upon the circumstances. Operating a business that requires permitting/authorising without a permit or authorisation is illegal.
Officers inspect all permitted/authorised businesses at least once a year to ensure that they comply with the terms of their permit.
