Industrial and commercial
Certain industrial processes in Tower Hamlets are regulated by either the Environment Agency or by the Council. The Environment Agency permits a number of waste sites in the borough. The Council regulates smaller industrial processes such as:
- dry cleaners,
- petrol stations
- and concrete batchers.
Each process must hold a permit under the Environmental Permitting Regulations (2016). Permits for Part B and A2 installations are issued by the Council. Currently there are no A2 installations in the borough. We are required to keep a Public Register of these processes.
