Accelerated Procedure

A legal zoning plan destined to enables areas to be re-used, densities increased, or for other purposes of inner-city development can under certain circumstances be resolved and implemented in line with the Accelerated Procedure as per section 13a BauGB.

The preconditions for this to happen apply if the plan covers a surface area for possible construction of less than 20,000 . Should the permissible surface area between 20,000 and 70,000 , then the Accelerated Procedure can be initiated if a preliminary examination of the case in question demonstrates conclusively that the legal zoning plan will presumably not have any marked environmental impact.

The Accelerated Procedure can in principle not be applied if:

  • the legal zoning plan would create the legal basis for the permissibility of procedures that are subject to the mandatory duty to conduct an environmental impact assessment (EIA) as per the law on EIA or according to state law, or
  • there are grounds for assuming the impairment of ecological assets as stated in section 1 (6) no. 7b BauGB (flora/fauna habitats or European Bird Protection).

The specifics in this procedure compared to the regular procedure are:

  • the stipulation requiring early involvement of the citizens and early inclusion of the authorities can be waived
  • consultative inclusion of the sections of the public affected and the involvement of the authorities can be abbreviated
  • the need for an eco-audit, an eco-report, for statements on what types of environmentally-related information is available and for a summarizing declaration can be waived.

The customary local public disclosure of the legal zoning plan being resolved shall include reference to the type of procedure and the special nature thereof.

A legal zoning plan can be approved using the Accelerated Procedure if it departs from the representations in the land use plan to the extent that this discrepancy does not impair the orderly urban planning development of the community in question. The land use plan shall then be adjusted accordingly in the course of emendations.
