Houthoff launches new environment and planning act website

16 January 2024

The introduction of the Environment and Planning Act (EPA; Omgevingswet) on 1 January 2024 has drastically changed the legal landscape for environment and planning in the Netherlands. This substantial legislation package combines around 150 laws and regulations on topics such as construction, the environment, spatial planning, nature and water into one comprehensive framework. It entails major changes for matters like the development and redevelopment of real estate, the operation of industrial activities and the realisation of infrastructural projects.

Key guidance on all aspects of the environment and planning act

On our renewed Environment and Planning Act website you will find an English factsheet, in which we discuss the main changes brought about by the Environment and Planning Act: Highlights of the Environment and Planning Act. You will also find an overview of specific topics on which we have written more detailed factsheets. These factsheets are available in Dutch. If you would like an English translation, please contact omgevingswet@houthoff.com.
