Article 8.

In preparation for a permit application, if a realistic project study is available, the initiator can ask the competent authority stated in article 15 to organise a project meeting with the advisory bodies appointed pursuant to article 24.


The purpose of the project meeting is to coordinate procedures between the authorities concerned and discuss any project adjustments required or deemed useful.


The competent authority stated in article 15 can invite third-party stakeholders to a project meeting, either on its own initiative or at the request of the initiator.


The Government of Flanders can establish more specific rules in relation to the project meeting and in so doing can limit its scope.
