The shortest way to the quickest advice is a collection of frequently asked questions. Maybe below is also your question and the answer you are looking for. If this is not the case, we also recommend looking at “frequently asked questions” from the national government or to our useful links. See also our disclaimer.

What is a ‘conceptaanvraag’ (draft application)?

If you have plans to build or renovate, while there is uncertainty about the feasibility of your building plan, it is possible to have a draft application provided by us on the basis of global drawings and data. The building plan is checked by the municipality against the zoning plan and can be submitted to the design review committee if desired. In this way it is possible to find out, without too high costs, whether your building plan is feasible or not. Of course you can only build when you have also applied for the building permit required for your building plan for the building activity and it has been granted to you. The municipality strives to answer your draft request within eight weeks. This can also take much longer in case of pressure of work and / or complexity. This is an indication date because there is no final deadline (that’s only with a permit).
