Planning & Development/Environment

Netherlands

Property developers and public authorities are exceedingly ambitioxus when it comes to building and infrastructure projects. The Netherlands is a small country, however, and space is limited. Spatial planning law therefore plays a major role here. The growing number of planning laws, including at European Union level, means that sound legal assistance is needed right from the start of a project and will produce the best results. To make matters even more complex, national and regional planning and zoning regulations are constantly being amended, with public authorities at every level redefining strategic planning policies, developing new and legally binding zoning plans, and issuing general mandatory regulations on spatial planning.
 
CMS offers businesses and public or semi-public authorities tailor-made advice about spatial planning, zoning and development, and public housing law. We can help you with zoning plan procedures, amendments to government-imposed zoning plans, routing decisions, exemption procedures and the new permits issued under the Spatial Planning and Development Permits (General Provisions) Act (WABO), which entered into effect on 1 October 2010. We can also advise you on all the various permits that have been incorporated into a single spatial planning and development permit since 1 October, and on legal questions about listed buildings.

We specialize in:

  • Land Exploitation/Municipalities (Preferential Rights) Act (WVG): Robert Lucassen
  • Environment, Nature Conservation and Water: Luurt Wildeboer
  • Integrated Environmental Permits and Zoning Ordinances: Luurt Wildeboer
  • Compulsory Purchase and Compensation for Loss Resulting from Administrative Acts and Government Planning Decisions: Marjolein Pesch
