Spatial Planning and the Environment

“Finding your way through the jungle of regulations”

Space is scarce in the Netherlands and must be put to good use. When developing a plan, the parties will therefore soon be confronted with many rules, which are moreover subject to frequent change. Examples are the Spatial Planning Act, the General Provisions of Environmental Law Act, the Crisis and Recovery Act and the General Administrative Law Act. It is simply not possible to realize projects without a thorough and up-to-date knowledge of environmental and administrative law.
