Catering permit outdoor catering (special use)


A use of public road space that goes beyond or restricts common use constitutes a special use. It requires the permission of the road construction load carrier and is subject to a fee.

If you want to use public spaces in front of your restaurant or café for the construction of an outdoor restaurant, you must first apply for a permit for special use. The permit is granted by decision to the applicant and can be provided with conditions, conditions and time limits. Whether and with which ancillary provisions the permission is granted is at the dutiful discretion of the authority.

  • Scale-to-scale site plan
  • Information on the location, type and duration of the special use as well as the size of the required road areas

An administrative fee is charged for the granting of the special use permit in accordance with the General Schedule of Fees of the State of Saxony-Anhalt.

In addition, a special use fee may be charged for the special use itself, provided that there is a corresponding statutory basis.

The special use permit must be applied for in good time before the start of outdoor catering. The special use permit is granted for a limited period or on revocation and may at the same time receive conditions and obligations.

The responsibility lies with the trade office of the respective municipality or district-free city.

Applications must be submitted informally.

If you want to expand a catering business to include outdoor catering, you must notify the trade authority. From a certain number of seats or if buildings such as platforms or canopies are to be erected, a building permit may also be required.

Should unauthorised special uses or violations of the conditions of the special use permit be detected in the course of control activities, appropriate regulatory measures will be initiated (e.g. warning, fine and penalty payment, substitution).
