Service Description

Plan approval is a formal administrative procedure for the binding official approval of a plan. All public-law relationships between the project sponsor and those affected by the plan are regulated in a legally binding manner. Without planning approval, a large number of public law procedures would have to be carried out for major projects, which would make efficient and consistent planning almost impossible.

Construction projects are generally approved by means of planning approval (planning approval decision, planning approval, waiver of planning approval and planning approval). A planning approval procedure is accompanied, among other things, by a public participation procedure (known as a hearing procedure).

In particular, the construction and modification of overhead power lines from 110 kV, airports and landing sites, gas supply lines and hydrogen pipelines over 300 mm, dyke construction and waterway development, port development, railroad lines, federal and state roads and freeways are generally subject to planning approval.
