Certain industrial activities have the potential to contribute to air pollution. Local authorities, along with the Environment Agency, are required to regulate them to ensure that they are using best practice to minimise emissions to air. This responsibility is detailed in the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010.

Part A1 processes

Part A1 processes are very large operations such as power stations. These are regulated by the Environment Agency. There are no Part A1 processes in the City of London.

Part B and A2 processes

Both Part B and Part A2 operations are regulated by local authorities. The Part B regulatory system is known as Local Authority Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC). The Part A2 system is Local Authority Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (LA-IPPC). Local authorities deal with about 80 different types of installation including:

  • dry cleaning
  • vehicle respraying
  • furniture manufacture
  • cement batching
  • petrol stations

There are currently three Part B regulated processes in the City of London. They are listed below. Further information about these operations has been placed on a public register, which is free to view at the City of London Walbrook Wharf Office on Upper Thames Street.
