Stibbe has advised Circuit Park Zandvoort on the necessary permits for the renovation of the circuit to make it possible to host Formula 1 racing in Zandvoort. Various nature and environmental organisations had requested the District Court of Noord-Holland in two preliminary relief proceedings, to stop the work on the circuit. The proceedings concerned eligibility for an exemption for disturbing protected animal species, and a permit for carrying out a nitrogen-emitting project near a Natura 2000 area.
The Court rejected the requests of the nature and environmental organisations. Work may now begin to prepare the circuit for Formula 1 racing.
