We are Stibbe Water, Waste and Air specialists

There is no unfamiliar area to us in environmental protection legislation, ensuring our clients receive the most pertinent and accurate water, waste and air solutions.

Water Waste and Air

Deciphering the best course of action with regards to water, waste and air matters can be a confusing process for clients. It’s why we carefully guide them to the best possible solution.

Firstly, we are experts in EU and national water legislation, handling water regulation issues, permit applications to discharge water and extract groundwater, and deposit soil dredging.

Our waste processing expertise ranges from dumping site regulations and waste transport, to biomass processing, recycling and landfills – matters we act on for large participants in this field from processors to governments. 

We also advise on the consequences of European legislation to prevent air pollution, the applicable regulation for each case and the required analysis of the air quality. Further to this, we act on odour and fine dust issues, obligations to minimise substances in the air, and compliance with national emission regulations and EU directives.

Grondwettelijk Hof vernietigt versoepeling landschappelijk waardevol agrarisch gebied!

Articles - De Codextrein is niet onbesproken. Reeds een aantal van de bepalingen die werden ingevoerd door de Codextrein stuitten op een ferme "njet" van het Grondwettelijk Hof. Het nieuw ingevoegde artikel 5.7.1. VCRO blijkt hetzelfde lot beschoren te zijn. Deze bepaling strekte ertoe komaf te maken met de zeer strenge (te strenge?) rechtspraak van de Raad voor Vergunningsbetwistingen en de Raad van State inzake landschappelijk waardevol agrarisch gebied (LWAG). Benieuwd naar de draagwijdte van deze bepaling en het vernietigingsarrest? Met deze blog bent u weer helemaal mee.
