RASK represents client in green infrastructure-related planning dispute.


RASK represents a client in a court dispute over how thoroughly a local government should be required to justify the exclusion of an unsuitable area from green infrastructure.

The dispute started with a detailed plan established by the local government, allowing the construction of a commercial building with a parking lot on a property owned by the developer. The owner of an adjacent property filed an action with the administrative court to repeal the detailed plan. The neighbouring property owner maintains that the newly established detailed plan is unlawful because part of the planning area is inside a buffer zone reserved for green infrastructure according to already existing spatial plans.

RASK attorney-at-law Villy Lopman represents the interests of the developer, who was brought in as a third party in the dispute by the court.
