Land consolidation; application for funding

With land readjustment, the Free State of Bavaria promotes and supports projects of municipalities and public planning authorities, e.g. to improve rural infrastructure and to preserve and shape nature and landscape.



Land consolidation is an instrument for the sustainable development of the cultural landscape. It is intended to improve the production and working conditions in agriculture and forestry, to maintain and expand the performance and functional capacity of the natural balance, to protect the natural basis of life (soil, water, air) and to support the necessary expansion of infrastructure. With land readjustment, the economic and ecological interests in the cultural landscape can also be harmonized. The offices for rural development offer technical, organizational, legal and financial support. This makes it possible to implement an area-wide reorganization of land ownership, the implementation of construction and design measures, traffic development and improvement of infrastructure, water management measures, measures for leisure and recreation as well as measures for soil protection, nature conservation and land management. Land consolidation strengthens the economy and improves the structure of the rural area as a place to live, work, recreate and enjoy nature.
