Make an environmental enquiry

Through our environmental enquiry service, you can request information about the potential presence of underground petroleum storage tanks data relevant to a particular address in Tyne and Wear.

The data is supplied under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

The information supplied in the report represents the information we currently hold in response to your specific enquiry.

The Authority does not warrant the accuracy or sufficiency of the information for your purposes in relation to the site you have identified. The absence of any records does not mean that underground storage tanks are not present at or within the vicinity of a site.

Our records do not relate to the storage of other fuels (i.e. diesel and fuel oils) and other chemicals.

As environmental enquiries are exempt from the Freedom of Information Act 2000, a charge of £168.00 plus VAT applies for each search.

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service became the Petroleum Licensing Authority in 1976, so we won’t be able to provide any information prior to then.

Provide as much information as possible.
