Outdoor advertising systems


Outdoor advertising is the form of advertising in which the advertising medium is located in the public space.

According to the building regulations of the land of Saxony-Anhalt, a building permit is not required for advertising facilities, among other things, insofar as they require approval under road or road traffic law. It is therefore necessary to examine whether the advertising installation is a structural installation which may be subject to road or road restrictions. Only if these conditions are not met would a building regulations permit be considered. The direction of the respective legal requirements is different. Road traffic law directly protects traffic. The road construction regulations serve the special need for protection of the road in its function as a transport route. The regulations of the Land Building Code regulate the requirements of land use or structural technical requirements for the plant. It is necessary to take all concerns into account.

The vehicle responsible for road construction must make the road available to the public as a transport route in a suitable condition. This also depends on the structural conditions in the neighbouring area of the road. Disturbing is, among other things, any (intentional) distraction of the flowing traffic by building facilities, in particular advertising, on neighbouring properties. It is necessary to examine whether the intended advertising is to be installed inside or outside a local transit in the course of a county, state or federal road. Within such local transits, the distinction between development or interconnection areas of a local transit is again important due to different legal conditions. Construction facilities outside the parts of the local passages along the federal, state or county roads (development area) within a distance of up to 40 metres require the approval of the competent road construction authority indicated below.

Last but not least, besides all this, it can be significant that an advertising installation may also fall under the rules of special use, for which a special use permit must be granted.

Because the legal situation is not easy for the citizen to see through and a large number of different authorities would also be responsible, the Land of Saxony-Anhalt has developed an uncomplicated procedure. All application formalities relevant to the construction of an advertising installation may be formally requested in writing by the following road construction authorities in cases where road law permits or restrictions exist or where a special use permit may be required:

  • in the case of municipal roads via the respective municipality
  • for county roads over the respective district
  • in the case of 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 Land acts for the federal government within the framework of contract management). The addresses are:
