The majority of the Process Industries require an Environmental Permit to operate in the UK. To gain an Environmental Permit, operators have to show that they are applying the Best Available Techniques (BAT) to prevent and control environmental impacts. They must also meet other sector specific requirements that take account of local factors. Add to this the frequent changes to regulations and the sheer volume of information required, it’s not surprising that the whole application process can become extremely time consuming and a significant distraction from core duties.

If you require a Permit or need to submit a variation application due to changes on site and simply don’t have the time or resources to devote to the process, we can provide support.

Specific areas where we can help include:

  • Environmental Permit Applications, from new applications, to variations and surrenders
  • Environmental Permit Application Site Condition Reports
  • Improvement Programmes
  • BAT and Bref Reviews
  • Air Emissions Modelling
  • Environmental Impact Assessments including Noise and Odour
  • Intrusive Investigations
  • Regulatory interactions
  • Compliance advice

We have an enviable track record in the preparation of Permit Applications across a wide range of industries, within excess of 750 applications submitted to UK Environmental Regulators. We can provide different levels of support ranging from the acquisition of data to successful completion and presentation of the application to the Regulator. Our Environmental Permitting and Compliance team consists of permitting experts and ex-Regulators supported by the breadth of SLR’s 30+ technical service teams, to provide you with a single source solution for all your permitting needs.
