Abstract (in English)

There are well over 40.000 protected monuments and historic buildings in the Netherlands, i.e. buildings which have been listed in the 'Register of Protected Monuments and Historic Buildings Act of 1961. This Act contains a number of provisions the purpose of which is to ensure that historic buildings are protected and their value recognized. For instance, permission must be obtained from the Minister of Culture before any conservation or refurbishment work can be carried out. To stimulate conservation, however, there are also arrangements and schemes in existence designed to allow owners to maintain their properties. The most important of these are government grants and special tax facilities.
