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 Hulst.

Municipality of Hulst: Applying for a planning permit

You are going to refurbish your house or you are going to build a new driveway on your plot. Since 1 October 2010, you require a permit under the Dutch Environment and Planning Act for this.
This permit replaces many permits in the area of living, space, environment, and nature. Assume you require multiple consents, then the permit under the Dutch Environment and Planning Act suffices. It can be applied for at one service counter. One procedure applies after which one decision follows. To appeal against this decision, there is only one appeal procedure left.

Do you want to know whether you need an omgevingsvergunning (planning permit)? You can do an online vergunningcheck (permit check) at the Omgevingsloket online (planning permit online service desk) in Dutch.
