It’s possible that you need to apply for a permit at water authority Stichtse Rijnlanden of the municipality. The Legal Rule Engine gives you an easy way to find out if you can get started with your building plans.

Less red tape

If you want to build something near the water or a dike in the Netherlands, you might need a water permit to do so. For many people, it can be quite an ordeal to find out which papers they need before they can start working on a certain location. This often leads to a wrong request, or people may just decide to start working without a permit. If worst comes to worst, the water board will then point out that they have to dismantle their newly-constructed jetty. The Stichtse Rijnlanden water board wanted to avoid this kind of red tape and consulted Geodan.
