Creating construction laws in a timely manner

New incentives using the internet and software (GIS)

A dialogue with Prof. Dr. Jörg Schaller, managing director of Prof. Schaller UmweltConsult GmbH, part of the SSF Group


The amendment of the German construction laws (BauGB), applicable since 13 May 2017, intends to expand the communities'options in view of creating lively, mixed-use quarters and additional living space in the framework of the new building area category "Urban Areas". Moreover, an accelerated procedure in the new paragraph §13b BauGB allows communities to integrate outlying areas for residential construction. They can from now on establish development plans with an area of up to one hectare for residential use in the context of this accelerated procedure. The new regulations are limited until the end of 2019. Cities and communities are invited to act. Do new digital methods provide support for them?



The event, held by BAUINDUSTRIE BAYERN, VSVI Bayern and VBI Bayern, takes place on 18 July 2017 at Oskar von Miller Forum in Munich.
