Public registers

The Public Register is a register of all processes that operate in Derbyshire Dales under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016. A current list of all regulated facilities can be downloaded at the end of this page.

Local authorities are required under regulation 46 of the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016 (as amended) to maintain a public register containing information on all the installations and mobile plant they are responsible for regulating. Such installations were previously regulated under the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000.

A register can be held in any form, which includes electronically. The main public register for all processes within Derbyshire Dales is available for viewing during office hours at the Town Hall. A simplified version has now been made available to member of the public using the links on the left-hand side of this page.

Information on installations that are regulated by the Environment Agency are available to view during office hours at the Town Hall. This information is not available electronically.

Certain types of activities require regulation by law to control pollutants that they may emit to land, air or water. Local authorities deal with about 80 different types of installation. Glassworks and foundries, rendering plant and maggot breeders, petrol stations and concrete crushers, sawmills, paint manufacturers and quarries are among the sort of activities regulated. The Regulations say exactly which installations need a permit. In several cases only larger installations require a permit and the thresholds are set out in the Regulations. Once a permit is issued, the operator must comply with the permit conditions. All regulated installations are inspected on a prescribed frequency by the Council to check for compliance with permit conditions.
