Request information from the register of contaminated sites or soil protection cadastre

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Sites suspected of being contaminated are, on the one hand, plots of land of decommissioned companies/plants and other plots of land on which environmentally hazardous substances have been handled (contaminated sites) and, on the other hand, plots of land of decommissioned waste disposal plants and other plots of land on which waste has been treated, stored or deposited (contaminated sites).

The competent authority maintains a register of contaminated sites in which areas suspected of being contaminated are registered.

For various reasons, a property owner or a person with a legitimate interest needs to know whether a property is suspected of being contaminated. For this purpose, an application for information from the register of contaminated sites can be submitted to the competent authority.

For the provision of information to persons who are not themselves the owner of the requested property, a power of attorney from the owner must be presented.


Process flow

If you want to know whether official information on contaminated sites or harmful soil changes is available for a property, submit an application for information from the register of contaminated sites.

The relevant application form with the necessary information is forwarded to the competent authority in whose area of responsibility the property in question is located.

You will then receive notification from the authority as to whether the property in question is registered in the register of contaminated sites and what information is recorded there. As the register of contaminated sites is continuously updated, this information on contaminated sites represents the current status; the right to make subsequent changes is reserved.
