Abstract
These Regulations amend the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 (EPRs) in order to extend the requirement for an environmental permit to flood risk activities. The amendments: provide for relevant definitions; provide for exempt flood risk activities; make provision for permit applications to be granted subject to conditions relating to ongoing maintenance or access requirements by the regulator; extend to flood risk activities current flexibilities in the EPRs concerning the grant by the regulator of a permit covering various activities by a single operator; extend the current provisions in the EPRs on variation, transfer and surrender of environmental permits so that they provide for flood risk activities; make provision for appeals in relation to permits authorising flood risk activities; extend the current provisions in the EPRs on enforcement and offences relating to permits so that they provide for flood risk activities; grant power to arrange for steps to be taken to remove a risk of serious flooding, detrimental impact on drainage or harm to the environment.
