Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Parts of installations may, due to their nature or operation, cause harmful environmental effects or otherwise endanger, significantly disadvantage or annoy the general public or the neighborhood.

If you want to erect or operate a plant, you need a partial permit from the competent authority. A partial permit can be applied for and issued if the full permit for an applied-for facility has not yet been issued, but the following conditions are met:

  • There is a legitimate interest in issuing a partial permit,
  • the licensing requirements for the subject of the partial permit applied for are met, and
  • a preliminary assessment shows that there are no a priori insurmountable obstacles to the construction and operation of the entire facility with regard to the permit requirements.

Process flow

The approval procedure requires a written application, which must be accompanied by the drawings, plans, expert opinions and explanations as well as other documents required to check the conditions for approval.

  • If your application is complete, it must be made public with the documents, if necessary, and then displayed for one month. In simplified approval procedures or when public participation is waived, there is no public interpretation or discussion meeting.
  • At the latest at the same time as the public announcement of the project, the licensing authority shall at the same time invite the authorities to be involved to submit their opinion on the permit requirements within one month.
  • If the approval requirements are met, the authority examines whether there is a legitimate interest in the construction and operation of the sub-project.
  • A preliminary assessment shows whether there are no insurmountable obstacles to the construction and operation of the entire installation with regard to the conditions for partial authorisation.
  • You will receive the notification of approval or rejection of the sub-project.
Competent authority

State Office for the Environment of the State of Schlesiwg-Holstein (LfU)

Requirements
  • The sub-project meets the requirements of the Federal Immission Control Act.
  • The subproject is not precluded by any other regulations under public law or occupational health and safety issues.
  • A preliminary assessment has shown that there are no a priori insurmountable obstacles to the construction and operation of the entire plant with regard to the permit.
    • The preliminary overall assessment is no longer binding if the factual or legal situation or individual inspections change in the course of subsequent partial approvals, thereby also changing the assessment. In this case, the authority may refuse the approval or further partial approvals.
Which documents are required?
  • Drawings, plans, expert opinions
  • Explanations

For further required documents, please contact the responsible office.
