Zoning law

Zoning law is the legal area that governs the organisation of land within the Netherlands. Developments in this field are of great importance to your business. Whether it relates to developing a project or building, or as a point of attention for the further growth or preservation of your business.

Pact lawyers advises and supports you, prior to and during planning developments, about the opportunities and possibilities that these developments offer your business.

The construction and usage possibilities of space in the Netherlands are set out in zoning plans. For your construction or transformation project it might be necessary that the zoning plan is amended or that you apply for an environmental permit for building or using territory in deviation of the zoning plan.

Pact lawyers guides you through the process. Our lawyers not only know what is formally required, but also facilitate contact with the council and other stakeholders. To this end, Pact lawyers works together with consultants who advise you on drafting the necessary documentation for your development.

Pact lawyers ensures the legal quality of the zoning plan in the form that it will ultimately be determined by the council and ensures that the zoning plan is sufficiently robust to withstand future legal scrutiny.

Are you being confronted with amendments to a zoning plan which threaten your business? Pact lawyers can advise you on your options. Perhaps political consultation or legal measures.
