Construction advisory services
Both the Construction Supervisory Office and the City Planning Department are responsible for providing advisory services and local authority approval for construction projects in Frankfurt/Main. Since 2005 the Construction Supervisory Office has had overall responsibility for advisory services on urban planning, for assessing projects in terms of construction planning laws and construction decrees, as well as for approving construction projects.
The City Planning Department provides advice and an expert opinion in the case of special complex cases and in the districts that come under the planning jurisdiction of the City, in other words in areas involving ongoing urban planning tasks. The latter are primarily defined by formal development planning procedures and other statutory processes under the German Construction Code or the Hessen Construction Code. That said, informal planning (such as overarching urban planning concepts or areas to which special municipal construction laws apply, examples being city modernization and city development areas) can be defined as the prerogative of the City Planning Department.
