Applying for a permit for an activity on a Natura 2000 site

Do you want to carry out activities in or close to a Natura 2000 site? For example, building a house or cutting down trees. Some activities are harmful to nature because they disturb the habitat of plants or animals. You must therefore apply for a permit from the province where you plan to carry out the activities.

Requesting a permit for activities in a Natura 2000 area

If you want to carry out a project or activities in or near a ‘Natura 2000’ nature reserve that could adversely affect the quality of the protected area, you first need a permit from the provincial authorities.

You must apply for a permit if:

  • you wish to carry out a project or activities that could adversely affect a Natura 2000 site. For example, because of the expansion of your agricultural holding, leading to an increase in nitrogen deposition in the Natura 2000 site
  • it cannot be ruled out in advance that your activities might adversely affect the quality of natural habitats or cause the habitats to deteriorate
  • it cannot be ruled out in advance that your activities might have a disruptive effect on the plant and animal species for which the site has been designated
  • these activities are not exempted in a management plan or regulation as referred to in the Nature Conservation Act

You apply for the permit with the province in which the project is located.
