Permits and licences

There are several steps in the timeline for the permits for the GEMS project. In June 2019, ONE-Dyas will start the licensing process with the submission of the Notitie Reikwijdte en Detailniveau (NRD; English: Memorandum on Scope and Level of Detail), which will be available for inspection until mid-July.  ONE-Dyas invites all interested parties and parties involved to express their views. During the preparations for the NRD, ONE-Dyas already contacted and spoke to as many stakeholders as possible. All this to ensure that their wishes, ideas and concerns are clear from the outset.
