Environmental permits

Environmental permits

Our team has an in-depth knowledge of Environment Agency practice and procedure, and advises on compliance issues, including applying for, variation and appeal of permit conditions and refusals.

If your business faces formal action for unpermitted activities or breach of permit condition(s), we are able to liaise with the regulator to try and avoid formal enforcement action and, if this is not possible, to attend and represent you at cautioned interview and defend any subsequent enforcement/suspension notice or criminal proceedings.

We have particular expertise in:

  • Waste regulation, permitting and exemptions
  • Landfill
  • Composting
  • Chemicals
  • Industrial processes – Part A and Part B
  • Water regulation and pollution incidents
  • Emissions to air (odour, dust, noise).

If permit issues arise in the context of corporate, property transactions or insolvency situations, we are able to advise upon the extent of liability and the ownership of, ability to transfer and/or surrender the permit.

We also advise on challenging refusals to grant an Environmental permit, including Judicial Review.
