If the application involves the construction, modification, relocation or closure of a municipal road and the competent authority establishes that the municipal council has not taken a decision on this, the governor, at the request of the deputation, the Government of Flanders or the regional environmental officer, will call the municipal council together to decide on the construction, modification, relocation or closure of the municipal road.
The municipal council decides on the location, width and equipment of the municipal road, and on possible inclusion in the public domain. In this regard, the municipal council may impose conditions and attach charges, which the competent authority will include in the eventual permit. The legal protection with regard to those conditions and charges is the same as that with regard to the permit.
The municipality submits the decision of the municipal council on the construction, modification, relocation or cancellation of the municipal road to the competent authority within sixty days after the convocation by the governor.
