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. for the improvement of rural infrastructure and for the preservation and shaping of nature and landscape.



Land consolidation is an instrument for the sustainable development of the cultural landscape. It is intended to improve production and working conditions in agriculture and forestry, to maintain and develop the performance and functional capacity of the natural balance, to protect the natural basis of life (soil, water, air) and to support the necessary development of infrastructure. Land readjustment can also reconcile the economic and ecological interests in the cultural landscape. The offices for rural development offer technical, organisational, legal and financial support. This makes it possible to implement a comprehensive reorganisation of land ownership, the implementation of construction and design measures, transport 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.


In land readjustment the following expenditures are eligible for support

the planning and construction of roads and paths water management measures soil protection, nature conservation and landscape management measures leisure and recreation measures land readjustment with surveying, demarcation and valuation the reorganisation of vineyards and special crops.
