Applying for a planning permit

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.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Hof van Twente.

Municipality of Hof van Twente: Applying for a planning permit

You do not always need to apply for an environmental permit. Sometimes a notification is enough. You can do a permit check via the Omgevingsloket (Environment Desk). This check makes it clear whether you need a permit or whether you only need to make a notification or whether you do not need anything (permit-free).

Please note: If you want to start building, your building plan must in principle comply with the zoning plan. Via Ruimtelijke plannen (Spatial plans) you can find more information and all zoning plans in Hof van Twente. If you want to deviate from the zoning plan, you can submit a request in principle. Before you submit an application, we advise you to first consult with the municipality.
