Industrial pollution information for business

Local Authority Pollution Prevention Control (PPC)

The Council has a duty to regulate certain types of installations within our borough to reduce pollution and in particular improve air quality and these installations include dry cleaners, vehicle resprayers and petrol filling stations. 

Our role in the regime is to issue permits which set controls and emission standards to minimise pollution from certain industrial activities. Business that operate certain types of installation therefore must have a permit from the council (A2 and Part B installations). All permitted installations within our borough are entered on a public register.

Further information on permitting can be found on the environmental permitting section of the gov.uk website Environmental permitting (gov.uk website).

Public Register

See our PPC Public Register for information on all the permitted instalations within the Borough of Reigate & Banstead. This list is kept up to date whenever a new permit or update to a permit is made.

Part A1

Part A1 installations are regulated by the Environment Agency and not the Local Authority. Application forms are available from the Environment Agency.

For Part A2 applications we advise that you consider initially contacting Environmental Health either by email on environmental.protection@reigate-banstead.gov.uk or by telephone on 01737 726417 to discuss your application prior to submission.
