Just to check, does your Siedlung have a Gestaltungsplan? Does your Siedlung operate as a neighborhood or owner's association?
Was thinking that as well but according to the GIS it is normally zoned.

Re: Could I win a fight against a neighbor's Baugesuch?

Hi,

It would be very interesting to learn how this situation was resolved (if indeed it ever was).
Unfortunately, we are facing a similar problem, although I think the impact on our house is set to be a lot worse.

In our case, our neighbours are planning to extend their house over their garage to make room for their daughter’s family (5 people) to move in with them. The only issue we have with this is that the garage is directly south of us and it will extend the shadow from their existing house right across our terrace, living room and kitchen. At the moment the sun passes over the top of their garage and the sunlight that we get in Autumn/Winter/Spring is something we particularly value about our home. This will be completely taken away.
Unlike the OP, we have enjoyed a great relationship with our neighbours for nearly 6 years. This appears to be fading fast, despite our desire to maintain a dialogue and look for a compromise. About 3 months ago we asked if we could talk over the matter. They asked us to wait a couple of weeks while they finalise plans. Fine, we waited, enquired again after a while, and this has been repeated a few times. Yesterday I asked my neighbour again. It is now clear to me that they won’t be open to compromise and in the time we have been hoping to discuss the matter with them, they have been seeking to ensure that we won’t be able to prevent their project being realised.

It is clear from reading through this thread that views on this kind of issue range widely. I want to be as open and reasonable as possible. I certainly don’t want to stop their family moving in at all. In the past they have objected to certain things in our garden (tree planted too close, etc.) and we have always responded to their requests. What bugs me most of all is that, if somebody sought to do to our neighbour’s house what they intend to do to ours, they would never accept it.

So far the marker post have not been put up yet. Basically, I wonder if the OP (or anybody else) could answer the question posed earlier in this thread – how seriously will the Bauamt consider deprivation of light if we go against the plans?

Thanks!

Are you in BL or BS?

But see my post here as we're going through the same process. (In BL).

Thanks. We are actually in canton SO.

I have looked through your thread, and thanks for the useful information. You seem to be well organised and have the best sort of attitude to the situation - best of luck with it all!

Re: Could I win a fight against a neighbor's Baugesuch?

In the 1850s and 60s, the entire city of Chicago was raised between 4 and 14 feet in order to install drainage. Whole blocks were raised with hundreds of screw jacks and then foundation walls were built underneath. This was 170 years ago - imagine what a local builder could do now.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Re: Could I win a fight against a neighbor's Baugesuch?

I had a kind of similar case but not as bad I guess.
The plot in front of my property was sold and a new high end property was built and covered some of the nice view.

I did some research and with your gemeinde you should be able to get the regulations about building/extending your property.

In my case, the regulation was so detailed, covering even the fence distances, garden, hight of trees that I believe in most case, if it gets approved, there is very little that can be done. Maybe if the project is borderline make it more expensive for the neighbour, Since he has been planning this he prob got some legal insurance and is well prepared.
