The use of every land parcel and building in the Netherlands is laid down in a land-use plan. Appropriate and undesirable developments are laid down in area development plans and comprehensive zoning plans. In the Netherlands town and country planning is also concerned with the quality of the urban and rural environment. Seeking good advice can save private individuals and entrepreneurs alike a great deal of bother. It is not uncommon for a private person or business to meet limitations concerning the desired use of a building or piece of land. Although in some cases a simple planning permission or permit will suffice, in many cases a change of use will be required. We are happy to advise you on any planning issues in the Netherlands.
