Jirka van de Pas


Consultant spatial planning and environment

Works at Van Santvoort Advies since:

January 2021

What are your tasks within Van Santvoort Advies?

Van Santvoort Advies provides tailored advice on issues in the field of (agricultural) real estate, especially in the rural area. As a spatial planning and environmental consultant I think along with our clients about the development of their private or business location. Together we determine a future vision and strategy to get there. Then, together with my colleagues, I work this out in a spatial procedure, such as a request in principle, zoning plan or environmental permit. I maintain contact with the government and ensure that the plans can actually be implemented.

What are you proud of at Van Santvoort Advies?

As Van Santvoort Advies we look for a custom solution for every spatial challenge. Something that can be easily arranged we do not make unnecessarily difficult, but we also go to great lengths to be able to realize the wishes of our clients.

What is important in your work at Van Santvoort Advies?

In spatial planning it is important to prepare an application in such a way that a municipality cannot ignore the initiative. This requires careful consultation between initiator, government and the colleagues of Van Santvoort Advies. I am in favor of facilitating this, so that a plan can be brought to a positive conclusion as quickly as possible.

What do you do next to your work?

Besides my work I like to take a walk or bike ride in the beautiful Brabant landscape. I also like to cook and enjoy that with friends.
