Zoning/land development plans from local authorities in Saarland
A zoning plan sets out how much of what can be built where on a specific plot of land and is an important instrument for ensuring orderly urban development within a city or local government area (LGA).
The provisioning of municipal digital plans and articles is both supported and required by legislation at EU level, and by Saarland itself as a German land (INSPIRE Directive, SGDIG).
A dedicated application in GeoPortal Saarland facilitates the presentation of local authority zoning plans structured by district. Complementing the map view, users can also access and print out the wording of the decisions made as well as additional metadata.
As of this writing, full coverage is not available for all local authorities in Saarland (see figure). It is important to note that the data hosted in GeoPortal is not provided in an official or legal capacity and makes no claims to be exhaustive. Legally binding information is provided only by the approved original maps, which can be viewed at the city or local authority offices.
Alongside zoning plans, Geoportal Saarland can also display land development plans from local authorities as well as the plan from the Saarbrücken Regional Association.
