Horizontaal toezicht in het omgevingsdomein

In the environment domain, there is governmental control: the public safeguarding of a social interest. Governmental control is often the direct result of a political decision to intervene and to tackle a concrete problem. In this case, the quality and safety of the living environment. Governmental control can be designed in various ways.
