This course covers the principles of environmental permitting and will explain how industrial activities are regulated under the UK’s Pollution Prevention and control framework. The role of PPC and the interfaces and conflict with other legislation and areas of work such as Statutory Nuisance will be examined. Delegates will be introduced to the EU Industrial Emissions Directive, which instructs and supports LAPPC / LA-IPPC. The structure and amendments to the Environmental Permitting (England and
Wales) Regulations 2016 (As amended) will be discussed in detail. The role of guidance including the General Guidance Manual, and PG/SG notes will be reviewed and statutory obligations for Local Authorities, such as consultation will be determined. Good practice, as required to effectively manage the LAPPC / LA - IPPC function will be analysed in detail.
