After this, the zoning plan and the planning permit were amended on 11 October by the municipal council of Borger-Odoorn. These amended plans were available for viewing from 8 November 2018 up to and including Wednesday 19 December 2018 for appeals. Based on the obtained permit, Lightsource BP applied for the required SDE + subsidy and this was awarded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate in January 2019.

Lightsource BP is now busy with building preparations, including providing the grid connection with Enduris, drafting implementation designs and obtaining the final public-law permissions.
