Environmental permitting

Industrial activities that have the potential to cause significant pollution are required to hold environmental permits.

The permits have conditions that protect the environment through the use of agreed industry-wide ‘Best Available Techniques’, which are published by the Government’s Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

Environmental permitting guidance is available from DEFRA


Please send completed applications with the relevant fee to The Environmental Protection Team, Derby City Council, Corporation Street, Derby. DE1 2FS
