    "mettre en concession" is to grant a concession,
    I don't know the definition of this in English, but I do know it in French : ;)
    CNRTL :
    DR. ,,Acte (...) par lequel l'Administration confère à des particuliers, moyennant l'assujettissement à certaines charges et obligations, des droits ou avantages spéciaux sur le domaine ou à l'encontre du public`` (Cap. 1936).
    Hope it helps.
