Application process

Environmental Protection will make site visits to assess the installation and assist in drafting permit conditions. They will also guide the operator through the application process.

Are there any spot checks made during the licence lifetime?

Once the permit is granted the regulator will make periodic inspections to check compliance with permit conditions. The Council regulates the frequency of these inspections, according to the risk rating score that is determined by the level of compliance noted during the inspection. The risk rating score also determines the annual subscription fee.

Does tacit consent apply?

No. It is in the public interest that the authority must process your application before it can be granted. If however you have not been notified of the decision within the relevant period the application can be deemed as being refused for which there is a right of appeal.
