Granting access to building permits for neighbours
A construction project can have an impact on the neighbouring properties of the building plot. That is why the building code contains numerous regulations that serve to protect the neighbors.
These include, for example, boundary distances for buildings and outbuildings. In addition, there are regulations that give the neighbors a special legal position in the building permit procedure.
In this way, neighbors can view the building templates that affect their concerns at the competent authority.
