You need a permit for canals (vergunning Kanalenreglement) from the provincal authorities if you want to:
- reroute or re-lay,
- prevent the use of/decommission, or
- dismantle (celan up)
a structure in provincial waterways. You may have to pay administrative charges.
Do you need to moor a vessel on a fixed location to perform building activities? You need to apply for an exemption with the provincial authority.
