Nature + Green

Legal guidelines

In Berlin the BAF can be established primarily in landscape plans as an environmental planning parameter. The inherent legally-binding arrangements can be found in Berlin's "Handbuch der Berliner Landschaftspläne". However, the BAF can also be utilized in all developed areas as a guideline for environmental measures. Consequently, site-related standards are to be implemented for building projects in developed areas in order to achieve the goals of the protection of nature and of landscape maintenance.

Establishing a site-related BAF for building projects has proven to be worthwhile.
