Outdoor advertising refers to forms of advertising in which the advertising medium is located in public space.

According to the building regulations of the state of Saxony-Anhalt, a building permit is not required for advertising installations, among other things, if they require approval in accordance with road or traffic law. Accordingly, it is necessary to check whether the advertising installation is a structural facility that may be subject to restrictions under road traffic or road law. Only if these requirements are not met would approval under building regulations be considered. The objectives of the respective legal requirements differ. Road traffic law is directly concerned with the protection of traffic. The road law attachment regulations serve the special need for protection of the road in its function as a traffic route. The provisions of the state building code regulate the concerns of land use or structural technical requirements for the facility. It is necessary that all concerns are taken into account.

The owner of the road must make the road available to the public as a traffic route in a suitable condition. This also depends on the structural conditions in the neighboring area of the road. Among other things, any (intentional) distraction of flowing traffic by structural installations, especially advertising, on neighboring properties has a disruptive effect. It must be examined whether the intended advertising is to be installed within or outside of a local thoroughfare in the course of a county, state or federal road. Within such local thoroughfares, it is important to distinguish between development or connection areas of a local thoroughfare due to different legal requirements. Structural installations outside the parts of the local thoroughfares along the federal, state or district roads (development area) intended for the development of the adjacent properties at a distance of up to 40 meters require the approval of the responsible road construction authority specified below.

Last but not least, in addition to all of the above, it may be important to note that an advertising installation may also fall under the regulations on special use, for which a special use permit must be issued.

Because the legal situation is not easy for citizens to understand and, in addition, a large number of different authorities would be responsible, the state of Saxony-Anhalt has developed an uncomplicated procedure. All application formalities relevant to the erection of an advertising system can be applied for informally in writing from the following road authorities in cases where road-law prohibitions or restrictions on cultivation exist or where a special use permit may be required:

  • for municipal roads via the respective municipality
  • for district roads, via the respective district
  • for state roads, via the branch of the Saxony-Anhalt state road construction authority responsible for the area (this also applies to federal roads for which the state acts on behalf of the federal government). The addresses are:
