Pre-construction enquiry and planning permission

Before submitting a building application, the client may, with a preliminary request for a building, submit information on individual questions which would have to be decided in the building permit procedure and which can be independently assessed, to the competent authority. Request construction projects.

A preliminary request for construction is usually useful if, for example, it is unclear whether a plot of land can be built at all under the applicable building planning law. A preliminary construction request can save financial expenses, as not all the documents required for a building permit are required. In addition, the client receives early assurance about the buildability of a plot of land.

The preliminary decision shall be valid for three years and shall bind the competent authority for this period, insofar as the substantive statements in the preliminary decision do not deviate in principle. An extension of the preliminary decision is possible on request.
