In its May Community Safety and Policing Bulletin, the LGA reminded councils of the requirement to update the Environment Agency with scrap metal licences. It wrote:
We have heard some reports of instances where councils may not be keeping the Environment Agency register of scrap metal licences up to date. The register records the name of the local authority issuing the licence, the name of the dealer, their trading name, the address of any sites identified on the licence, the type of licence and when it will expire. Councils should ensure the Environment Agency are promptly given this information.
Councils can access training delivered by the IoL on the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013.
