Exemption for the use of floodplains: grant

In areas designated as floodplains, an exemption is required for the following measures:

  • the construction or extension of structural installations,
  • the construction of walls, ramparts or similar installations across the direction of flow of the water in the event of flooding,
  • the application and storage of water-hazardous substances on the soil, unless the substances may be used in the context of proper agriculture and forestry;
  • which not only provide short-term deposits of objects which may hinder the run-off of water or which may be washed away,
  • the elevation or deepening of the earth's surface,
  • the installation of tree and shrub plantations, insofar as they are contrary to the objectives of providing flood protection,
  • the conversion of grassland into arable land, as well as
  • the conversion of Auwald into a different type of use.
