Change barrier to secure urban land use planning - apply for exemption for construction projects not subject to procedures

Service Description

A change restriction in accordance with the German Federal Building Code (BauGB) serves to secure binding urban land use planning by means of development plans. A change restriction is adopted by the municipality in connection with the preparation of a development plan.

The purpose of a change restriction is to secure the objectives associated with the development plan. If a change restriction has been adopted, construction projects may not be carried out, structures may not be removed and no significant or substantial changes to the value of land and structures may be made. The period of validity of a change restriction is limited in time.

Exceptions to the freeze on changes may be permitted if there are no overriding public interests to the contrary.
