Environmental permits public register

The online public register only lists documents created after 1st April 2013. North East Lincolnshire Council may hold further documents that can be viewed by appointment.

Some documents in the register will not be accessible as they were produced by third party companies. If you need an accessible version of any of these documents then please email [email protected].

A2 Installation: Fish meal and fish oil

The fish meal process involves two main sources of fish material as follows:

  • Offcuts, trimmings and offal from fish processing facilities
  • Industrial whole fish caught specifically for fish meal processing

The process involves the heating, pressing, separation and drying of the fish to extract oil and dry the residual meal. The operation typically yields 5% of wet weight in oil and 20% of wet weight in meal. The meal is used primarily for animal feed (aquaculture, chicken and pigs) whilst the oil may be used for direct animal feed, human consumption or in the manufacture of hardened oils.

A2 installation: Print/coat metal packing

This process consists of the printing of food grade packaging.

A2 installation: Wood preservation

This section refers to preservation of wood or wood products with chemicals, including organic solvent based and water based chemicals, other than for exclusively treating sapstain in an installation with a production capacity of more than 75m3 per day.

The treatment plant consists of two main components. These are the treatment vessel that may be a cylindrical or rectangular pressure vessel and one or more storage tanks.
The treatment vessel incorporates a loading system to enable packs of wood to be moved in and out, either manually or automatically. The treatment vessel door incorporates safety devices to prevent the process starting until the door is fully closed and locked and to prevent it being opened until all preservative is removed. There are normally two storage vessels; one is the working vessel which holds the preservative to flood the treatment vessel and the other is the bulk tank which is used to accept delivery of new preservative and to replenish the working vessel.

Bulk cement

This process involves cement being blended, packed, loaded, unloaded or used in bulk. Whether for internal use or for sale (such as concrete batching plants, concrete block making plants) and bulk cement transfer including cement and clinker loading to, and unloading from, ships.

Bulk storage of chemicals

Coal, coke and coal products

This process involves coal, coke or coal products that undergo any of the following: size reduction, screening, grading, blending, packing, loading or unloading. It also refers to the loading or unloading of petroleum coke.

Coated roadstone

This section refers to the production of coated roadstone. It also refers to any ancillary handling of materials which takes place as part of these processes.

Coating of metal and plastic

This section refers to applying a substrate, or drying or curing after such application, printing ink or paint or any other coating material as, or in the course of, a manufacturing activity, where the process may result in the release into the air of particulate matter or of any volatile organic compound and is likely to involve the use in any 12 month period of 5 or more tonnes of organic solvents.


Information and documents for the crematoria can be viewed by selecting the documents displayed.

Dry cleaners

This section refers to any dry cleaning using organic solvents in particular: perchloroethylene (PER), hydrocarbon solvent (HCS) and siloxane.

Manufacture of coating materials

This section refers to the process of manufacturing or formulating printing ink or any other coating material containing, or involving the use of, an organic solvent, where the carrying on of the activity is likely to involve the use of 100 or more tonnes of organic solvents in any 12-month period.

Metal foundry

This section refers to foundry operations carried out in conjunction with iron and steel and non-ferrous metal processes which are prescribed for local air pollution control. These include mould and core making, casting processes (including die casting), knock out, quenching, shot blasting, metal removal (for example, grinding, fettling, and arc air), degreasing, polishing and finishing (including oxy cutting). In addition the note relates to foundry sand reclamation operations. It also covers the heat treatment of castings.


Mineral Drying

Mobile crushing / screening

This process involves the crushing, grinding or other size reduction, with machinery designed for that purpose, of bricks, tiles or concrete, and to mineral products designated by regulation.

Respraying of road vehicles

This process refers to the refinishing of road vehicles and associated degreasing activities performing: The coating of road vehicles as defined in Directive 70/156/EEC, or part of them, carried out as part of vehicle repair, conservation or decoration outside of manufacturing installations.


This rubber process includes any installation where the activity of mixing, milling, blending, calendering, extrusion and vulcanisation of natural or synthetic rubber and any ancillary operations for the converting natural or synthetic rubber into a finished product is carried out.

Petrol filling stations

Small waste incineration plant

This process involves the use of a stationary or mobile technical unit and equipment dedicated to the thermal treatment of waste, with or without recovery of the combustion heat generated, through the incineration by oxidation of waste as well as other thermal treatment processes, such as pyrolysis, gasification or plasma processes, if the substances resulting from the treatment are subsequently incinerated.


The timber process refers to the manufacture of products wholly or mainly of wood at any works if the process involves the sawing, drilling, sanding, shaping, planning, turning of wood and the throughput of the works in any 12-month period is likely to exceed:

  1. 10,000 cubic metres, in the case of works at which wood is sawn, but at which wood is not subjected to any other relevant process, or is subjected only to relevant processes which are exempt processes
  2. 1,000 cubic metres in any other case

Unloading and storing at petrol terminals

This process relates to the storage, loading and unloading of petrol at petrol storage terminals. Petrol is stored in stationary tanks which are fixed roof tanks, or tanks with either internal or external floating roofs.
