Petroleum storage registration

Registration of petroleum storage

To run a business where petrol is stored for dispensing directly into the fuel tank of an internal combustion engine, or where large amounts of petrol are stored for private use, you need a licence from Middlesbrough Council.

A fee will be payable for this licence. The fee is variable and depends on the amount of petrol stored.
