Apply fora cooling tower registration

The Council has to list all cooling towers within the borough. The registration of cooling towers is therefore a legal obligation.
Website survey

We want your help with improving our website so it is easier to use, and provides the information that residents need. Help us by filling in this short survey.

Cooling towers use water to cool evaporative systems found in cooling systems and in some power stations. In recent years evaporative systems have been replaced by condenser systems are they require less maintenance and also do not have the same risks with water born illnesses such as legionella.

The register is a list for public view and does not infer any other inspection responsibility on the Council, for example a cooling tower sited in a power station would be registered with the Council but would be enforced by the Health and Safety Executive as they have the enforcement role within power stations.
