What is a territorial decision

Territorial decisions make it possible to place buildings and equipment on land. The Territorial Decision is issued by the relevant Building Authority on the basis of the Territorial Procedure or Simplified Territorial Proceedings. In the case where a specific regulation is decided by a body other than the building authority in a given area, the authority decides only in accordance with the binding opinion of the building authority. The application for a territorial decision contains general requirements as well as basic information about the intended purpose, identification data of the land or the building on which the project is to be carried out, and the indication of the persons having the right of ownership or other right to adjacent land or buildings therein, their right is directly affected by this territorial decision.   If the building office has sufficient information and background to assess the intention, it may forgo the oral hearing. Within 15 days, the parties may raise their objections.
