Cooling tower registration

Registration of cooling towers

Middlesbrough Council is responsible for overseeing the registration of premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are located.

If you operate a business or own premises where a cooling tower or evaporative condenser is located you must tell the council. You must also tell us when any registered equipment is permanently taken out of use.

Read more about the relevant legislation.

How to apply

You can apply for registration online.

Tell us about a change to your existing registration.

What happens next?

Once you've provided registration details you may commission your equipment without further consent or approval from the council.
