Construction project; Notification of the start of construction work

You must notify the start of construction in advance. This applies to the start of execution of projects requiring approval as well as the resumption of construction work after an interruption of more than 6 months.

Description

The notification of the start of construction is not an application. You only have to inform the lower building supervisory authority about the imminent start of construction.

By notifying the start of construction, the lower building supervisory authority should still have sufficient time to prepare construction monitoring measures and to check whether the period of validity of the building permit has expired.

Consequences of non-notification

If you intentionally or negligently fail to report the start of construction at least one week before the start of construction, you commit an administrative offense. You can be fined up to EUR 500,000 for this. In addition, the lower building supervisory authority can order the cessation of construction.

Prerequisites

You must notify the start of construction if:

  • You start the execution of a construction project requiring a permit,
  • you resume construction work after an interruption of more than 6 months, or
  • you remove an installation subject to notification.

This also applies to projects covered by a partial building permit and to projects that do not require a permit.

Procedure

Written submission

  • Submit the completed and signed "Notice of Commencement of Construction" form with the required attachments to the lower building inspection authority (district offices, independent cities, large district cities and certain larger municipalities).
  • A verbal notification is not sufficient.
  • You will not receive an acknowledgement of receipt.
  • The lower building supervisory authority then checks whether the period of validity of the building permit has not yet expired. It may also prepare measures for construction supervision, if necessary.

Digital submission

Digital submission of the notice of commencement of construction is currently only possible for construction projects in the districts of Altötting (without the town of Burghausen), Aschaffenburg, Augsburg, Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Cham, Ebersberg (excluding the municipality of Vaterstetten), Hof, Kronach, Main-Spessart, Neustadt a.d.Waldnaab, Pfaffenhofen a.d.Ilm (excluding the city of Pfaffenhofen a.d.Ilm, if applicable), Straubing-Bogen, Traunstein (excluding the large district city of Traunstein) and Weilheim-Schongau, as well as in the city of Kitzingen.

  • The start of construction can be notified digitally to the lower building supervisory authority using the online assistant.
  • The predefined forms "Construction start notification" and (if required) "Determination of the responsible structural engineer for the construction" are replaced by the queries in the online assistant.
  • Signatures are replaced by authentication using the user account "BayernID".
  • The remaining attachments are uploaded in the online wizard in electronic form (files in PDF format).

Special notes

You must also indicate the "start of construction" if you are removing a facility and need to indicate this.

Deadlines

You must notify the start of construction at least one week before the start of work.
