Applying for planning permission to erect a plant using the simplified procedure


You need a building permit before you can erect an installation that requires approval.

To do this, you submit a building application to the responsible lower building supervisory authority. As a rule, you must commission an authorized draftsman - for example a civil engineer or architect - for this.

In your application, you can also specify whether you wish to make use of a reduced inspection program.

  • The building project complies with public law regulations
  • If not, you can apply for and justify deviations with the building application
  • Building application (via online service or publicly published form),
  • Extract from the official real estate register,
  • Site plan,
  • construction drawings,
  • building description.

If they are to be submitted, also:

  • Proof of stability,
  • fire protection certificate,
  • Information on the secured development.

Please contact your local building authority to find out which documents you need to submit for your specific building project.

at least 50 €

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

The fees depend on the following factors

  • Expenditure for the examination of the building permit
  • Expected costs of construction
  • You must start construction work within 3 years of receiving planning permission.
  • You may then interrupt the construction work for a maximum of 1 year.
  • You can have the building permit extended for 1 year.

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

In principle, your application is automatically approved if you have not received a decision from the building supervisory authority after 3 months.
