We have recently been commissioned to undertake a Permit Variation in Trowbridge, Wilshire.
The site has been running under an existing permit for a number of years, but an upgrade to some of their equipment will mean that an environmental permit variation.
On the face of things this would seem fairly easy, but in reality it is very tricky as the EA often ask for all kind of information, which might extend to activities outside of the variation.
For example if you were to vary the permit because you are installing a new boiler over 1 MW, they may also ask you to provide new emissions data on your abatement system for dust extract.
More often than not things can and do inflate past the requirements for what logically might be expected when varying an environmental permit.
If you would like to find out more please call for a no obligation chat.
