Warwick District Council is responsible for the regulation of certain industrial processes that have the potential to cause air pollution. We currently regulate approximately 30 processes across the district including an incineration plant, vehicle re-spraying operations and a mineral extraction site. Officers in the Environmental Protection Team work closely with industry to help improve environmental performance and to ensure compliance with regulations.
The Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000 and the Solvent Emissions Regulations 2004 specify which industrial processes are required to hold permits. Some permits are issued by the District Council whilst others are issued by the Environment Agency. The fees and charges for operating authorised processes are set by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The current level of fees can be found on the DEFRA website.
The application forms needed to apply for a permit can also be obtained on the DEFRA website. A full list of registered processes within Warwick District can be viewed on line using the link provided below. It is strongly recommended that operators of industrial processes who wish to apply for a permit contact the Environmental Protection Unit in the first instance to discuss their requirements in detail.
Processes holding permits are also required to apply for permission to make any substantial change to their process. A 'substantial change' is defined in the the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000. The application forms needed to apply for a substantial change can also be found below.
