Permit-free construction work Announcement

The construction of certain buildings and other construction facilities in residential areas and industrial areas is possible in individual cases without planning permission and can be indicated in the context of a notification procedure.

Which buildings and other construction facilities are, under which conditions, unlicensed construction measures and require written notification is regulated in Section 62 of the Lower Saxony Building Code (NBauO).

Since no building permit is granted, the client, together with the draftor, is responsible for complying with all the requirements that the construction project must meet.

The client may require that a building permit procedure be carried out instead of a notification procedure. The building permit procedure incurs higher fees and the processing time is usually longer.

Process flow

Instead of an application for construction, the client submits a signed notification of the intended construction project to the competent authority. This must be added to the building templates signed by the drafteeor.
Insofar as an examination of the structural evidence or the suitability of the rescue routes is required, these documents may be attached to the other building templates or submitted separately to the building inspectorate.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the municipality, the velvet community and the city. After examination, the latter forwards the notification to the lower building inspectorate for processing.

An overview of the lower building inspectorates can be found on the website of the Lower Saxony Ministry of Social Affairs, Health and Gender Equality.

Requirements

The draftee is subject to more specific requirements, such as qualifications and adequate insurance cover. The structural planner must also have a special qualification in accordance with Section 65 (4) of the Lower Saxony Building Code (NBauO).

Which documents are required?

Documents are required. These depend on the type of construction project. The draftor knows which building templates are to be submitted for the construction project.

The necessary documents should be submitted in duplicate.

What are the fees?

Fees may apply. Please contact the appropriate body.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Construction may begin as soon as confirmation has been received by the competent authority that the development is secured and, if necessary, confirmation of the suitability of the rescue routes of the client.

This confirmation shall be issued by the competent authority within one month of receipt of the documents.

What else should I know?

If there are doubts as to whether or not an intended construction project requires planning permission, information may be obtained from the competent authority before the measure is implemented. Certain construction works construction measures are process-free construction measures and do not require communication.
