Clean Air Act
Under the Clean Air
Act 1993 it is an offence, with certain exceptions, for
industrial or trade premises to emit dark smoke. This Act also
allows the council to control emissions to the air through the
prior approval of the height of a chimney serving furnaces of a
certain size. Other legislation still applies in certain
circumstances and for some smaller scale industrial processes.
