Home owners attack building licence fees

The difference in levies on residential building licences have never been so wide, according to home owners lobby group Eigen Huis.

For example, a permit to place a dormer window in Rotterdam costs €411.30, while in Leiden, the council charges just €33.35, Eigen Huis said.
Eigen Huis said the differences were unacceptable and that efforts by the local authorities association VNG to introduce uniformity had had little effect.
