Service Description

Certain building projects are exempt from procedures (building projects not requiring approval) in accordance with Section 61 of the State Building Regulations for Schleswig-Holstein (LBO).
Under certain conditions, these include facilities such as

  • Necessary garages and bicycle garages,
  • necessary covered parking spaces,
  • screen walls,
  • enclosures (fences),
  • greenhouses,
  • fountains,
  • swimming pools or
  • temporarily erected scaffolding or bicycle parking facilities.

In the case of these construction projects, the building owners act on their own responsibility. This means that they must ensure on their own initiative that the facilities they erect or modify do not conflict with public law regulations, for example the provisions of a development plan, and are sufficiently stable.

In the event of deviations from the provisions of building regulations law (Section 67 LBO) or necessary exceptions or exemptions from the provisions of building planning law (Section 31 of the German Building Code - BauGB), these must be applied for in writing to the lower building supervisory authority and justified before the start of construction.


Who should I contact?
  • If applicable, to the districts or independent cities (= lower building supervisory authorities) or
  • to the independent municipalities (cities) listed in § 1 of the state ordinance on the transfer of tasks of the lower building supervisory authority to independent municipalities and offices (8th VO-LBO).
What are the fees?

Fees are charged in accordance with the state ordinance on administrative fees in matters of building supervision. Detailed information can be obtained from the responsible office.

Legal basis
Applications / forms

Applications can be submitted informally.

What else should I know?

Before you start building, any application for a deviation or similar must have been approved.
In addition, you should clarify in advance whether any approvals, consents, authorizations and permits required for your project under other public law regulations must be obtained before construction begins, such as approvals under the municipality's wastewater disposal or tree protection statutes, the Monument Protection Act or the State Nature Conservation Act. Information on this can be obtained from the relevant authorities.
