Environmental and planning law

Environmental and planning law is an especially broad field. That makes it all the more important for your legal partner to have expert knowledge and understanding of all its aspects: spatial planning issues, for example, including zoning plans, structural concepts and national policy strategies and environmental permits.

Alongside our expertise in matters of land policy and the Municipalities (Preferential Rights) Act, environmental law and environmental permits, the Nature Conservation Act and the Water Act, we also have substantial experience in conducting environmental due diligence for mergers and acquisitions.

Environment and Planning Act

At a time to be determined, the Environment Act will take effect. We have long been advising on the legal and practical implications for area development.


We advise and litigate on zoning plans for residential, industrial, business and mixed-use developments, among other matters. In doing so, we act for both public authorities (municipalities) and developers. We also support our clients in (avoiding) enforcement proceedings.
