Details of the charges payable in 1995/96 by operators of industrial processes which require air pollution authorisation by local authorities have been announced by environment minister Paul Beresford.

The charges have been increased by between 0% and 3.4% on the 1994/95 levels.

'Charges to cover the costs of local enforcing authorities in regulating processes which are subject to Part I of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 were introduced in April 1991.

'With the approval of the Treasury, and following consultation with local authority associations and industry, the secretary of state for the environment and the secretary of state for Wales have made a revised scheme specifying the scale of fees and charges to take effect from 1 April 1995. The secretary of state for Scotland, is revising the identical, parallel scheme for Scotland on the same basis.

'The standard application fee is increased by £25 to £990, the application fee for a former Alkali Act works is increased by £15 to £595, the substantial change fee is increased by £15 to £635, and the annual subsistence charge is increased by £20 to £605. No change has been made to the remaining fees and charges.

'To help businesses with their budgetary planning, for the first time this year, the scheme will allow operators to pay their annual subsistence charge in quarterly instalments.
