Oerlemans v The Netherlands: ECHR 27 Nov 1991

Land was designated as ‘a protected natural site’, the effect of which was that agricultural activities could continue but that if the owner wished to alter or intensify the use of the land or to make certain changes in agricultural practices, authorisation was necessary. The owner argued that he had been deprived of the right to cultivate part of his land. The commission held that this involved a control of use; he was restricted in his manner of farming but not prevented from continuing his farming.
