LOCAL AUTHORITY ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION OF INDUSTRIAL PLANT: FEES AND CHARGES 2013/2014: DEFRA
The PRA has submitted a response to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’s (DEFRA) consultation concerning the level of fees and charges to be imposed for: Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control (LAPPC) and Local Air – Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (LA-IPPC). The consultation looks at the ‘level that will recover costs of local authorities of implementing the system’. The PRA has submitted that whilst the principle of cost recovery in the charging of fees is endorsed, Government monitoring of Local Authorities is a necessity and must be maintained. Furthermore, the PRA has expressed concerns that Local Authorities could easily manipulate minor infringements in order to gain additional revenue.
