Non-procedural construction projects for which the management of the design work and construction supervision are assigned to a construction department of the federal government, the Free State of Bavaria or a district equipped with suitable specialists do not require a building permit, exemption from approval, notification and construction supervision. They are subject to the building inspection approval procedure. The respective government is responsible for granting the necessary approval for construction projects of a construction department in a governmental district.
This procedure proceeds in two stages. First, the building department involves the neighbors and asks for approval by signing the plans. Next, the respective municipality is involved by the building department and asked whether it agrees with the project and the waiver of an approval procedure. If the neighbors agree and the municipality does not object to the waiver of the approval procedure, the procedure is completed and a building permit decision by the government is no longer necessary. In this case, however, the building authority must obtain any further permits that may still be required, for example under monument protection law.
If not all neighbors agree to the building project or if the municipality objects to the omission of the approval procedure, in a second step the building service department applies to the responsible government for approval by the building authorities in accordance with Art. 73 of the Bavarian Building Code (BayBO).
The building supervisory approval of the government takes the place of a building permit and represents an administrative act vis-à-vis the neighbors and the municipalities that do not agree with the project, against which they can take action in court.
Construction projects that serve national defense (including projects of the U.S. Armed Forces), official purposes of the Federal Police or civil defense only require notification to the government. In addition, the responsible municipality must be involved (notification procedure).
