Apply for a building permit for the construction of a plant


Before you can erect a facility that requires a permit, you need a building permit.

For this purpose, you submit a building application to the responsible lower building supervisory authority. Depending on the project, you as the building owner may need the support of an authorized design draftsman (e.g. civil engineer or architect).

  • Complete building application
  • Building project is in compliance with public law regulations
  • If not, you can apply for deviations with the building application
  • Building application (via online service or form)
  • Excerpt from the official real estate cadastre
  • Site plan
  • Construction drawings
  • Building description

If applicable:

  • Proof of stability
  • Fire protection certificate
  • Information about the secured development

Please ask your local building supervisory authority which documents you have to submit for your specific building project.

The cost depends on the following factors:

  • Effort required to review your building application
  • Expected cost of construction

at least 50 €

Fees for a building permit for every € 500 or part thereof of the chargeable building value = € 5

Period of Validity: 3 Years
You must start construction work within 3 years. Otherwise, the building permit will lose its validity. This also applies if you interrupt the construction work for more than 2 years. You can extend the deadline by 1 year. For this you must apply for the extension.

The building supervisory authority will decide on your building application within 3 months. The period begins with the confirmed date of receipt.

Exception: The authority can extend the deadline by a maximum of 2 months if there is an important reason. If the deadline is extended, you will be informed by the competent lower building supervisory authority, stating the reasons and the expected date of the decision.
