Cooling tower notification

Licence name
Cooling tower notification

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers help to remove excess heat from sites like power stations or chemical plants.

You must tell us about any cooling towers or evaporative condensers you have in Rochdale borough, even if the enforcing authority for your premises is the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This is because infectious diseases, such as Legionnaires' disease, can be found in many cooling or water supply systems. Telling us ensures we can take preventative measures to eliminate the risk of infection to employees or Rochdale borough residents.

How to apply

You're not required to apply. However, you'll be required to complete the notification form online.

How much it will cost

Does tacit consent apply?

Yes. This means that you will be able to act as though your registration is granted if you have not heard from us within 28 working days. Please note, however, tacit consent will only apply for notifications you submit electronically or when you can show proof of delivery.

Related regulations and laws

The Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condenser Regulations 1992 require you by law to tell local councils of any cooling towers or evaporative condensers in their authority area.
