Landscape conservation plan/intervention regulation

Statutory regulations on the protection of nature and landscape contain a multitude of rules governing encroachment that can occur within the scope of a plan or project. A general prohibition on deterioration of areas outside of Natura 2000 areas  or nature reserves exists in the framework of conservation regulations or under the legal protection of natural habitats. As a result, conflicts concerning nature and landscape conservation are to be taken into consideration and dealt with on this basis throughout the planning and approval process.

Avoidable interference with nature and landscapes must be ceased and unavoidable ones must be offset through appropriate nature conservation measures (compensation or substitution measures) in accordance with the German Federal Nature Conservation Act (BNatSchG). For your project, Müller-BBM prepares landscape conservation plans and technical papers in line with federal and state laws that comply with the framework requirements of the German Federal Nature Conservation Act.
