Public consultations for environmental permitting

Where an installation requires a permit under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016, they must first go through the permitting application process.

Public comments

For some types of applications, the general public are invited to make comments. This is called the public consultation period.

The application and accompanying documents with an application, provide the necessary information to allow the public to make informed comments. These can provide the local authority with facts and views that will help with the final decision regarding the determination of a new application.

Certain installations that fall under the Public Participation Directive (PPD) issued by the European Commission also give members of the public an opportunity to participate in the permitting application process.

Applications that you may wish to view or comment on, can be found on these web pages.

All documents relevant to each of the applications are available as a PDF located at the bottom of each consultation page. Alternatively you can make an appointment to view the documents at our offices Monday to Friday during the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm. To make an appointment please email
