For a while now, we’ve been looking for a property where we can keep and train horses. This has been a difficult search with many complications. Fortunately, we could call Feije at Mount Consultancy and ask any questions we had about all those complicated permits and issues we need to consider for the municipality. This saved us from wasting money, and avoided many problems for us. After all, nobody wants to have to deal with all that. We certainly hope we’ll be able to make use of Feije’s expertise when looking to find the right property for us to buy, and helping us with the purchase

The Vullers family, Budel

We approached Feije for help getting planning permission for a second driveway and a fenced outdoor arena. She communicated with us clearly and well. She also provides clear, honest advice. And, most importantly, the result was also exactly what we wanted!

Dressage Stables Verhulst, Sterksel

Feije is very helpful and responsive to all our questions and concerns. She provides an excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to every detail. Her quick response to our questions makes working with her a very pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone.

Riossa Stables, Stramproy

We can’t deny that we live in a country with far too many rules and laws. Not only that, but we have far too many authorities checking up on you. It feels like some of them in Building and Housing, particularly those responsible for the agricultural/countryside cases, were specifically selected for the job for their ability to say ‘NO’. And this is reflected in the answers they give. If you ask “Is this or that allowed?”, their answer is never “This is what’s possible or you could do this if…”. No, the answer is always, “That is not allowed.” This is why it’s useful to have someone like Feije working on your case. She remains friendly, stays in touch, doesn’t allow herself to be put off by the snail’s pace of municipal government and, what’s more, she has top-class knowledge of laws and regulations, and possible alternative ways of interpreting them. This, combined with a real ability to convince others, has made me someone who will forever be a happy customer.

Abel J.L. Slippens, Erp

I came into contact with Feije some time ago through an external party. As we immediately felt able to put our all our trust in Feije, we transferred to Mount Consultancy. Mount is supporting our change of land use application during the purchase of our house. From the first instant, Feije came up with good insights and ideas, to our benefit. She helps us think ahead and does her best to make our final wishes become reality. Her communication skills have been excellent and she is easy to get hold of, too! (This is very helpful, as the procedures can take a long time and sometimes take unexpected turns.) Feije’s approach is extremely professional and to the point. She keeps in close contact with public officials, and ensures that the project does not attract undue attention from the municipality. Feije from Mount Consultancy is someone you can depend on, and is a pleasure to work with!

Kristy en Rens - Peters Grondwerken (excavation services), Schijndel

We have known Feije from Mount Consultancy for a long time through our mutual hobby/passion: horses. When we bought our house in Valkenswaard last year, she helped us with several projects. We had no idea there was so much involved. Feije researched all the possibilities for our horsing hobby on our plot of land. We wanted to cut down some of the trees. She discovered that a study of the local flora and fauna would mean that we didn’t need a permit to cut down trees, and put us in touch with someone who prepared the study. She also made it possible to get planning permission for our fencing, so we could make it at the height we wanted. Feije also represented us well in a meeting with the municipality about our future stables and riding arena. We now have a good overview of what we can and cannot build. She has given us excellent information, has valuable contacts, knows what she’s talking about and how to get things done. We hope that we can continue to use her as a consultant for many years to come as we realise our dream project!

Mount Consultancy has extensive experience in permit procedures in the equestrian sector and Feije’s customer-friendly approach makes her ideal for managing the process with the municipality.
