Revised PPC fees for N Ireland

The Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland has announced revised fees and charges for industrial and intensive agricultural installations regulated under the pollution prevention and control regulations.1

The application fee per component for a permit under Part A of the regulations will be £3,525 with a subsistence fee of £1,150 per year. Charges for Part B applications will be £1,425 with a subsistence fee of £875 per year.

Although there is no exemption allowed for Part A operations with "trivial" emissions, some companies may apply for a low-impact installation permit, which attracts a £2,000 application fee and £350 a yearly subsistence fee.

Intensive farms will benefit from reduced fees if the operator applies for a standard farming permit. Smaller intensive pig and poultry farms will be charged £2,000 for an application and £950 for subsistence. The normal fee would be twice this amount.
