Permanent grassland and permanent fallow land; application for an exemption for conversion.

You can apply for an exemption from the prohibition of conversion of permanent grassland and permanent fallow land into arable land or permanent crops.

Description

Prerequisites

The impairments must be compensated.

Procedure

1) Conversion of permanent grassland into arable land or permanent crops.

  • Farm subject to greening
    The application must be submitted to the responsible Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry. The lower nature conservation authority carries out the nature conservation assessment and issues a decision, which is forwarded to the Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry. The Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry checks the other prerequisites (e.g. water law, subsidy law). The Office of Food, Agriculture and Forestry then sends both notices to the applicant.
  • Farm exempted from greening (organic farms, small producers)
    The conversion of permanent grassland into arable land or permanent crops is subject to approval under nature conservation law! The application is submitted directly to the responsible lower nature conservation authority. The lower nature conservation authority carries out the nature conservation law examination and prepares a decision, which is sent directly from the lower nature conservation authority to the applicant.

2) Conversion of permanent grassland for grassland renewal

Farms subject to greening submit an application for conversion to the responsible office for food, agriculture and forestry. There, if necessary, a statement is obtained from the lower nature conservation authority and a decision is issued.

In the case of legally protected biotopes, any farmer planning to renew grassland there must obtain an exemption from the lower nature conservation authority.

3). Conversion of permanent grassland to non-agricultural land (usually for construction projects or afforestation).

The application must be submitted to the responsible Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry, which carries out the technical legal examination and, if necessary, obtains an opinion from the lower nature conservation authority. If "environmentally sensitive permanent grassland" is affected, the removal of the "environmentally sensitive" provision must be applied for. The Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry issues the decision.
