Peak Associates is a specialised consultancy that provides advice on matters relating to river and water pollution, effluent treatment, drainage and contaminated land. We specialise in defence, mitigation and negotiations with regulatory bodies on your behalf and we are well briefed on current legislation, its requirements and likely future trends.
“Peak Associates have been instrumental in maintaining our relationship with the Environment Agency over the past 8 years. Most significantly, their assistance with a permit variation application. Mike Matthews and his team are great to deal with.”
Nick Smith, Haweswater Smolt Unit
Born out of more than 30 years of experience by founder and Managing Director, Mike Matthews, formally an enforcement officer with the National Rivers Authority (now the Environment Agency) means, Peak Associates has unrivalled experience in the fast-moving environmental consultancy arena.
Peak Associates work with a wide range of clients from privately owned companies, local authorities and multinational organisations operating in the UK.
Our aim is to provide our clients with scientifically based solutions to environmental problems that are driven by the regulatory sector.
In undertaking this work we will not be afraid to challenge ourselves and most importantly the regulators and regulations being applied, where we have an evidentially based argument to suggest the regulator or regulations are wrong.
We will at all times keep our clients informed and where necessary provide guidance to them as to the actions our advice suggests they should take to achieve their required outcome for a project.
We will operate a policy of providing client advice in black and white.
