The paper, which reconstructs the evolution of infrastructure planning in Holland, offers a view of the transformations that have taken place in the legislative and financial context for projects, with a particular focus on the consultation procedures followed to guarantee the feasibility of programmed infrastructures. The reference to transformations in the institutional framework for infrastructure planning allows both the procedures and the stages when consultation processes required by law come into operation to be described. In effect, even if the decision-making process has been simplified in recent years, procedures such as consultation and environmental impact committees still constitute essential parts of the procedures in the implementation of an infrastructure project as do the procedures for defining compensation measures. Finally, the paper also gives an assessment of the effect and usefulness of consultations and compensation procedures with respect to improving the quality of infrastructure projects in Holland.
