Industrial pollution

Industrial pollution

Under the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999, certain industries require a permit to operate. This permit contains various conditions in order to minimise the emissions of pollutants to the air. Our Environmental Health service carries out periodic inspections to make sure these industries are compliant with the conditions of their permit.

We have issued permits and details of these industries can be found via the following link:

Permitted processes

In addition, the full public register is available for inspection at the Town Hall. If you are an operator requiring further information about applying for an Environmental Permit, or have an enquiry about an existing permit, you should contact the Environmental Health team.

The Environment Agency regulates other types of industry. Details can be found on their website at
