Seminar Application Ladder of Sustainable Urbanization

10.03.2015

On Tuesday 10 March 2015 Stibbe will organize a seminar on the Application of the Ladder of Sustainable Urbanization ('Ladder voor duurzame verstedelijking') in cooperation with the Stedelijke Planning Bureau.

The Ladder of  Sustainable Urbanization is a new instrument for spatial planning. It has been set up to ensure a thorough examination of the impact of planning applications from an environmental perspective. Local authorities, property developers, lawyers and urban planners have many questions about how to use the Ladder in a correct and effective way.

The Ladder has been used often since its inception. As a result, there are many practical examples available we can learn from, including how it is viewed by the courts.

During this meeting you will be informed about the Ladder from different angles:

  • Goal of the Ladder
  • The situations in which the Ladder could and should be used
  • Possibilities created by the Ladder for environmental/spatial planning
  • Insights from local authorities, provinces and the NEPROM (The Netherlands Association of Property Developers and Investors) regarding the application
  • Legal traps and the latest case law
  • Tips and tricks for a thorough understanding of the three steps of the Ladder

For more information please contact us: seminar@stibbe.com.

Please note this expert meeting will be held in Dutch.

Bouwsector en corona: onnodig op de rem?

Short Reads - In de bouwsector lijkt de coronacrisis de productie hier en daar onnodig af te remmen. Met name valt op dat vergunningverlening vertraagt. Voorts leggen opdrachtgevers bepaalde bouwprojecten stil. Ook worden aanbestedingen uitgesteld. Hieronder wordt de vraag behandeld in hoeverre bevoegde gezagen en opdrachtgevers daarbij in hun recht staan. Ten aanzien van aanbestedingen wordt een clausule voorgesteld waarmee deze doorgang kunnen vinden – rekening houdend met de onzekerheden rond corona.
