Project developer may get €20m damages

Project developer Chipshol is to get between €10m and €20m in damages from Noord-Holland province in the latest twist in their long-running battle over building permits close to Schiphol airport.

Earlier, Haarlemmermeer local council paid Chipshol a similar compensation package. Chipshol accuses the local authorities, national government, air traffic control body LVNL and Schiphol airport of working together to prevent it developing a business park close the airport.
Director Peter Poot said he hopes Schiphol, the state and LVNL will now settle the claims against them. Schiphol was ordered to pay compensation by the courts in 2005.
