One part of the redevelopment area is the planning are “Freiland”, on which roughly 100 accommodation units are in development. The land development plan for this part was agreed upon on May 23rd in 2013. The German Federal Building Code requires an environmental impact assessments for any changes or adjustments of the comprehensive site development plan (§ 2 Abs. 4 BauGB), in which the environmental interests, as listed in §1 Abs 6 NR 7 and § 1a BauGB, are being identified, described and evaluated in an environmental report.
