Environment permits and licences

Environmental permits and licences are a key component of EU and UK business regulation, designed to accelerate the transition to a zero waste and low-carbon economy. Operating a regulated facility or carrying on a business activity without due authorisation is an offence, enforced through criminal penalties and civil sanctions. Consequently, permitting and licence issues must be considered and fully reported when undertaking due diligence and/or advising on:

  • corporate, property and banking transactions
  • development, redevelopment or infrastructure projects
  • existing operations

If you need an environmental licence or permit, then you will need to take advice from an experienced environment law solicitor.

Offences and penalties

Environmental regulators have direct enforcement responsibilities for the investigation of breaches of regulation, and a duty to apply regulatory powers to address offences falling within their remit.

Civil sanctions were introduced under Regulatory Sanctions and Enforcement Act 2008, and the orders came into force in England on 6 April 2010 and in Wales on 15 July 2010. Environment Agency guidance states that 'the aim of enforcement is to make sure business and industry takes appropriate action to protect the environment, make sure regulations which prevent pollution are complied with and secure better outcomes for the environment, people and business'. The Environment Agency may decide to enforce when any of the following occur:

  • an incident
  • a breach of the conditions of a permitted activity
  • non-compliance with legislation

We can assist you with finding a solicitor to provide advice if you have been charged with an environment related offence.
