Re: Planning Permissions

View Post
Whether one is seeking permission to build or one intends to try to block building, much depends on the community. And how connected each party is in the community.

So before you begin, try to find out who you are up against. Be aware that you could be triggering a village war, think about long term consequences.

(I know one person who blocked a proposed development that would have brought some much needed services to the community. Then a few years later he applied for citizenship...)

But village idiosyncracies aside, as others have said, the Bauamt is your first stop. Once you find out what the plans entail, also think about whether a compromise to the plans could meet both your wishes and the needs of the owner. If a compromise could avoid lasting unpleasantness that is often the best way forward.
That's excellent advice thank you. We have a long term view so that's fitting advice for us.

As it happens the Bauamt gave replied to explain that the construction has already been authorised & no objections were registered.
Thanks all for your input.
