After we receive your application
The regulator may inform the public of the application and must consider any complaints. If we have not made any decision after four months you can assume the application has been refused.
If your application to vary, transfer or surrender an environmental permit has been refused, or if you object to conditions imposed on the environmental permit, you can appeal. If you want to appeal a decision, please speak to us in the first instance.
You can also appeal to the Secretary of State if you are refused a permit. You must do this within six months of the decision.
