Building and real estate

Public building law, planning law and environmental law form the core body of public law regulations that govern the planning and approval of real estate and infrastructure projects as well as industrial and other facilities. Moreover, large-scale projects often involve multi-stage planning and approval procedures, ranging from regional planning procedures, urban land use planning, plan approval and immission control approval procedures to building permit and other individual approval procedures. The complexity of these procedures and the demands placed on the planning, approval and operation of projects and facilities have increased significantly in recent years. On the one hand, this is due to the increasing number and complexity of requirements, whether based on European environmental law - e.g., species protection - or on municipal requirements such as the principles of socially responsible land use. On the other hand, the public interest in projects of any kind has increased considerably, and increased transparency as well as extended rights of action for associations make it indispensable to work through all legal requirements precisely and comprehensively.
