Those building poles and length of time before they build?

Does anyone know how long is the average time between those building poles going up and them actually starting to build?

We have an old building in front of us which today has had massive poles placed all over it, obviously I presume they want to start building in the summer which would be a major issue for us when we have just had new born twins.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

Can vary enormously.....there should be a sheet posted somewhere explaining something about the project and where to contact for details....

The major issue probably isn't the start date but that it will take freakin' ages to build whenever they start!

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

It's a hard one to call because of a few variables.

It may vary from one Gemeinde to another.

The poles indicate the dimensions of the proposed building, and normally the plans are on view at the Gemeinde office, for about 2-3 wks, for anyone to oppose the development - but only if regulations are not adhered to, and not because someone just doesn't want it there.

If an opposition is made, this can put back the schedule, until plans are amended, and/or an agreement is made.

If there is no opposition, the things can start to happen quicker.

At this time of year, with no snow or frozen ground, I reckon a ball-park estimation of about a couple of months before the digger comes - although could go either way.

For a "normal" size family house, it could be up to a year of disruption.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

As far as I'm aware those poles are there to indicate to the general populus the dimensions of the proposed building, therefore enabling people to raise an objection. Or they possibly just tell the people how it will be.

In any event those poles will hang around for months, possibly even a year, before any building work takes place IME.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

You really cannot rely on the poles going up relating to any specific building timeframe. It can vary tremendously. In our village recently, there were poles that went up 3 times on the same plot of land over a 9 month timeframe, as apparently round 1 and round 2 got shot down by the commune for various reasons. If you are concerned, visit your commune and inquire. If directly effected you can put in an opposition to the build if with the the comment period.

Plans for the proposed building should be posted in the entrance hall of the Gemeinde/Commune building. You should go to the Gemeinde Office and request to see plans if they are not posted there for perusal.

I have exactly same question as WelshBoyo had. Today those building poles were mounted at our apartment, I want to know by when I can expect the actual building work to start?

As long as it takes for all planning permissions to be granted and any legal challenges to be resolved. The poles for our planned balcony were standing for 2.5yrs that I know of.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

Poles have been up opposite our place for the last eight years (approx, not sure anymore) and there are several nearby that have been there more than a year. Others in the neighborhood resulted in building within a few months. The gemeinde will know if there are objections.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

As already mentioned, it's down to if there is any opposition for the future building(s).

In our case, the poles for our house went up for 1 month (minimum time apparently), and once the month was over and we had 0 oppositions from our neighbors, we could start building in 4-5 months. The permits came rather easily even with 2 rounds of minor changes as the project evolved.

If you really want to make sure your twins have an easy first year at home, I'd oppose the building plans to win some time. Or move, if you were planning on doing it anyways (more space, perhaps?).

You can opose building plans without too many problems, however in order to avoid spurious opositions from whoever for whatever, many communes, if not all, now request that individual oposition comes with a Chf 500.-- deposit that is returned if the oposition is upheld.

Re: Those building poles and length of time before they build?

The poles must be in place before the building plans are submitted and if the plans are approved and a permit granted, the poles can be removed right away. How quickly this is done varies greatly and is not always an indication of when building will commence.
