The Environment Office’s Environmental Protection Unit is responsible for environmental control. We take care of environmental damage prevention and offer guidance and instruction for citizens, communities and companies about environmental regulations. We also handle the granting of permits and supervision duties of environmental protection.
You may contact us when, for example, you are applying for a permit or when your matter concerns environmental contamination. You may also ask us for advice on environmental issues. Before contacting us, please see if your question has already been answered here: frequently asked questions.
