Environmental permits (PPC)


Applications must be accompanied by the correct fee - in addition there is an annual subsistence fee usually payable from 1 April each year which must be paid once the permit has been issued. A pro-rata fee will apply following the issue of a permit to cover the remaining months until 1 April of the next financial year.

These fees are set by the Environment Agency and reviewed annually.

The application is dependant on the type of process, and the type of application. Annual subsistence fees also vary depending on process type and the risk rating given by the Council during programmed inspection of the process. For more advice contact Environmental Protection.
