Environmental permit

If your business could affect the environment through air, land or water pollution then you will need to apply to Newport City Council for an environmental permit.

Visit Gov.UK to check if you need a permit 

Fees and charges

Environmental permit fees are set by the Welsh Government

Application evaluation

Local authorities must consider the target timeline (pdf) when considering an application for a permit.

Tacit consent will not apply as it is in the public interest that an application is processed before it can be granted.

If you have not heard from the local authority within a reasonable period, please contact the council
