Environmental permitting charges guidance

How the Environment Agency charges for activities that need an environmental permit and the charges you must pay.



You should also read the:

  • charging scheme which explains the legal basis for the Environment Agency’s charges

  • tables of charges which list the application charges and subsistence charges for different activities – with an explanation of how to use the tables to work out your charges

The application charges for different activities are in part 2 of the tables of charges.

The subsistence charges are in part 3 of the tables of charges.

Contact the Environment Agency if you are not sure which activity description from the tables applies to your operations.
