Are you planning to build or demolish something in your garden or next to your home? For example, do you intend to build a garage or cut down a tree? If so, you will often need a planning permit (omgevingsvergunning). You can apply for this permit via Omgevingsloket online. In some cases you only need to notify the authorities, and no permit is required.
You need a planning permit for various activities in your garden or in and around your house, such as:
- building a driveway;
- modifying, renovating or restoring a listed building;
- cutting down trees.
Go to Omgevingsloket online (online environment portal) to check whether you require a planning permit (in Dutch) or if just a notification is sufficient.
This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

This is how you apply for planning permission:
- Go to the online planning permit service desk (Omgevingsloket).

Discount for sustainable renovation
If you will be renovating sustainably, you can get a discount from the municipality. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The municipality will need 8 weeks (standard procedure) to assess your application. It will sometimes take 26 weeks (extended procedure). This will be the case, for example, if you want something different from what is stated in the zoning plan (bestemmingsplan). The municipality can extend the period once for a period of 6 weeks.
The list of permit applications and decisions is published on [link naar pagina gemeente].
Do you disagree with the decision? If so, you can lodge an objection. The following applies:
- For a standard permit (8 weeks), you must lodge an objection within 6 weeks of the decision being made and published. The conditions for lodging an objection can be found on [link to municipality page] .
- For an extended permit (26 weeks), the initial decision is a draft decision. You can submit your response within 6 weeks. After that a final decision will be issued. You can appeal to the district court (rechtbank) within 6 weeks. You can send your letter by post to: [Adres rechtbank]
