The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016

The Environmental Protection Section at West Lindsey is responsible for permitting and inspecting all A2 and Part B processes within the district.

These are operations that have the potential to cause air pollution, and include activities, such as, vehicle re-spraying, and unloading of petrol etc. Any person operating a process that requires a permit must submit an application, with a fee, to the local authority. The authority must then issue a permit in accordance with Government guidance. The operator of the prescribed process must comply with the conditions of the permit, and they will be subject to inspection to ensure this is the case.

As of today’s date, West Lindsey District Council has not carried out any legal enforcement (by way of service of enforcement notices) or prosecutions at any of these processes.

Further information, including Fees and Charges, is available on the Gov.UK website.
