We can take account of

  • Relevant environmental regulatory requirements and technical standards.
  • Information on local population and sensitive sites.
  • Permit conditions by providing information that we have not been made aware of in the application, or by correcting incorrect information in the application (e.g. monitoring and techniques to control pollution).

We cannot take account of

  • Issues beyond those in the relevant environmental regulations.
  • Anything outside the remit of the EPR, e.g. the proposed location of the site, which is done by the local authority via land use planning.
  • Whether a site should have a formal designation under Habitats Directive or other conservation legislation.
  • Whether the activity should be allowed or not as a matter of principle.
  • Land use issues when determining a permit application, even if changing the location of the activity would improve its environmental performance.
  • The impact of noise and odour from traffic on site or travelling to and from the site.
  • The legally defined process we follow to determine a permit.

The granting of a permit/variation if the operator is able to demonstrate that they can carry out the activity without significant risk to the environment or human health.
