Industrial and commercial
Certain industrial processes in Tower Hamlets are regulated by either the Environment Agency or by the Council. The Council regulates smaller industrial processes such as dry cleaners, petrol stations and concrete batchers. The Environment Agency permits a number of waste sites in the borough.
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.
