The application contains a description of: the installation; the materials, substances and energy it will use and generate; the conditions of its site; the source, nature and quantity of its foreseeable emissions and their significant effects on the environment; the proposed techniques for preventing, reducing and monitoring its emissions and preventing and recovering waste; and an outline of the main alternatives, if any, considered. This information is held in a register at the following location: The Environment Agency, Riversmeet House, Newtown Industrial Estate, Tewkesbury, GL20 8JG.
You can look at our register 9.30am-4.30pm, Monday to Friday.  Please phone the National Customer Contact Centre on 03708 506 506 to arrange an appointment.  You may get a copy of documents on the register.  We may charge to cover copying costs.  If you have any comments send these by 08 March 2017.

Normally we must put any responses we receive on the public register.  This includes your name and contact details.  Please tell us if you don't want your response to be public.
We must decide whether to grant or refuse the application.  If we grant it, we must decide what conditions to include in the permit.

This is not a planning application, and it is expected that a planning application would follow if the permit is granted.  It will be on the agenda for the Parish Council meeting on Monday 6th March so that a representation can be considered.  Anyone may make representations to the Environment Agency, using the contact details above.

The site is about a quarter of a mile to the north of the village, just south of Overton Farm, adjacent to the stream that runs between the A417 and Old Road and which supplies the water to the lake between Church Road and The Rudge.
