Public Building and Planning Law

Public building and planning law includes all legal issues concerning the approval of major infrastructure projects that are not subject to the development plans of a local community. Here, we are concerned with, for example, the expansion and new construction of the Rhine Valley railway or the new construction of major roads.

We mainly represent communities of the surrounding area on these projects, in order to optimally promote their interests before developers.

Within the framework of public building and planning procedures, – often in interdisciplinary collaboration with engineers and other experts – we raise comprehensive objections for our clients, which often lead to planning modifications.
