Part A2 permits
You'll need a Part A2 permit for smaller activities that impact air, land and water, such as:
- Large glass factories
- Sites that use large quantities of solvents
Part B permits
You'll need a Part B permit for smaller activities which only cause emissions in the air, such as:
- Vehicle refinishers
- Concrete batching plants
- Petrol stations
