4 1. Reason for planning Loh train station was shut down in the 1990s. In the following years, the structures and tracks were dismantled, the railway exemption procedure was carried out and in 2002 the areas were included in the NRW rail area pool. Since then, BEG NRW BahnflächenEntwicklungsGesellschaft NRW mbh has been responsible for the development of the area, which, in coordination with the city of Schwelm, has pushed the development of an urban structural concept and the development plan No. 66 Loh station. The now legally effective development plan No. 66 Bahnhof Loh of the city of Schwelm specifies not only the necessary development and compensation areas, but also commercial and mixed areas and, in some areas, residential areas, some of which have already been marketed and built on. The plots that have not yet been marketed are in the focus of various public and private developers and investors. In addition to two larger residential construction projects, the construction of single and semi-detached houses and groups of houses, the construction of public service use and other uses of the social infrastructure such as B. a kindergarten planned (see Fig. 1) Fig. 1: Current usage and development concept, status 06/2016 (without a defined scale) 4

5 2. Necessity and objectives of the development plan amendment The overriding objective of the development plan no. 66 Bahnhof Loh is the urban reorganization of the former railway areas as well as the revitalization of the abandoned areas through a mixture of residential, mixed and commercial uses. In principle, these objectives also apply to the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station. However, since the newly planned uses do not correspond to the stipulations of this development plan in all respects, it should be changed accordingly. Changes made As part of the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh train station, the following relevant changes were made in addition to editorial changes: General residential areas WA 1 - WA 4 were combined into one WA The planned street WA will be relocated 2.0 m in a southerly direction Roof shapes - SD and FD for all building plots, building heights uniformly 13 m instead of the previously fixed range of 7.5 m to a maximum of 10.00 m, ridge directions for pitched roofs parallel to the plan street WA. I. E. Eaves instead of gable buildings Roof pitches with SD range of Continuous construction field north of Planstrasse A Lower building plot areas for the purpose of simplified proof of parking space with the same GRZ Change of the textual stipulations for the creation of parking spaces Additional stipulations and notes on species protection Mixed areas: MI 4 - maximum building height 12 m instead of 10 m previously m MI 4 - III VG instead of the previous II VG MI 3 - graphic determination of new public traffic-calmed plan road MI instead of the previous private development Enlarged plot of land that can be built over with the same GRZ omission of fixed ridge directions Change of the textual stipulation for the creation of parking spaces Additional stipulations and notes on species protection 3. Planning procedure The area of ​​change is within the scope of the development plan No. 66 Loh station, which became legally effective on. Due to the location in the interior, the existing planning law, the planning objectives on which the development plan is based and the integrated spatial location, an accelerated procedure according to 13a BauGB is to be carried out. The following application requirements of 13a para. 1 BauGB are given: The planning area is in the interior and is already built on, the development plan does not establish the permissibility of projects that are subject to an obligation to carry out an environmental impact assessment according to the law on environmental impact assessment or state law and it there are no indications of impairment of areas of Community importance or of European bird sanctuaries within the meaning of the BNatSchG. When examining the application requirements, however, it was found that it can be assumed that the threshold value of the maximum permissible floor area within the meaning of 19 Paragraph 2 of the Building Use Ordinance of m² will be significantly exceeded. However, exceeding the upper threshold of m² can be ruled out. Due to the fact that the permissible floor space within the meaning of 19 Paragraph 2 of the Building Use Ordinance was exceeded, a preliminary examination of the individual case was carried out. 5

6 The expert review of the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station with regard to the features and criteria specified in Annex 2 to the UVPG (author: plan Büro für Garten- & Landschaftsarchitektur, preliminary examination of the individual case according to 13a BauGB or 3c UVPG 1. Change to development plan no. 66 "Bahnhof Loh",) has shown that at the time of this preliminary assessment, no significant environmental impacts are to be expected, not least because of the existing urban planning situation (existing possibility of sealing based on the legally effective development plan no. 66 ). Since the other application requirements are also met, the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station can be carried out in the accelerated procedure according to 13a BauGB. A formal environmental assessment is not required. Due to the use of the accelerated procedure, the following simplifications apply to the implementation of the planning procedure: Early information and discussion in accordance with 3 Para. 1 and 4 Para. 1 BauGB can be dispensed with.Instead of the participation of the public as well as the authorities and other public bodies in accordance with 3 Para. 2 and 4 Para. 2 BauGB can be given the opportunity to comment within a reasonable period of time An environmental assessment including an environmental report is not mandatory A summarizing declaration according to 10 Para. 4 BauGB is not required A plan monitoring according to 4c BauGB is not required If necessary, the zoning plan could be adjusted in the course of the correction. 4. Spatial scope of the development plan The approx. 4.9 hectare planning area is located approximately m north of the Schwelm town center in the area of ​​the former Loh train station. The planning area bordering on Hattinger Straße and Rheinische Straße to the north covers an area of ​​approx. M 2. The exact delimitation results from the general plan (see Fig. 2) and the plan drawing of the development plan. Fig. 2: Scope of the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 (without a defined scale) 6

7 5. Planning law and other requirements 5.1 State development planning (LEP) and regional planning (GEP 99) In the state development plan (LEP) of January 17, 1995, the town of Schwelm is classified as a central center in the so-called urban fringe zone. The city of Schwelm is also assigned the function of a medium-sized center within the framework of the central local structure in the new state development plan currently being drawn up (status drawing). The regional development plan (GEP) for the administrative district of Arnsberg from July 17, 2001, subsection upper areas Bochum and Hagen (Bochum, Herne, Hagen, Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis, Märkischer Kreis), indicates in the area of ​​the 1st amendment of the development plan No. 66 station Carry out an area for commercial and industrial uses (GIB) and a general settlement area (ASB). Fig. 3: Representation in the valid regional plan, status

8 5.2 Land use plan In the effective land use plan of the city of Schwelm, the planning area is shown as residential building area (W) and as mixed building area (M). The uses planned on the area correspond to the representations of the effective land use plan. Fig. 4: Representation in the effective zoning plan, status of the development plan The area of ​​change includes the central parts of the legally effective development plan No. 66 Loh station (see Fig. 4). Mainly general residential areas, mixed areas and public traffic areas are affected. Fig. 5: Development plan no. 66 Loh train station, status The stipulations of the legally effective development plan no. 66 are overlaid by the new stipulations within the area of ​​change. 8th

9 5.4 Further specialist planning There is no knowledge of further specialist planning that contradicts the municipal planning within the planning area. The authorities and other bodies responsible for public affairs are involved in the amendment procedure. The areas in the change area are exempt from railway operations. 6. Existence inside and outside the planning area 6.1 Integration into urban development In the immediate vicinity of the change area there are residential, mixed and commercial uses. The Beever & Klopphaus business and a distribution center for the DHL logistics company were recently relocated to the east of the change area. Further commercial uses are located south of Rheinische Strasse and Hattinger Strasse, with the businesses south of Rheinische Strasse in particular being located significantly lower due to the edge of the site being up to 5.5 m high. The living areas adjoining to the north are usually characterized by two-storey residential buildings with pitched roofs. The former stove factory at the intersection of Linderhauser Strasse / Herdstrasse has two full floors and a shed roof. In the vicinity of the change area, east of the building at Eugenstrasse 36, there is a playground. In the future, this can also be used by the residents of the new residential and mixed areas. 6.2 Current uses in the planning area After the rail uses have been dismantled, the area to be changed is largely undeveloped and lies fallow. In some cases, there are still remains of foundations and walls as well as trees and bushes in the edge areas. The Linderhauser Straße is crossed by a railway bridge, which is to be dismantled shortly. 6.3 Traffic situation The planning area is located approx. 200 m north of the classified federal highway 7 (Berliner Strasse) and borders in the western section on Landesstrasse 551 (Hattinger Strasse). The city center and the train station as well as the A 1 and A 46 motorways to the north and west can be quickly reached via these classified streets. The areas in the planning area are already accessible in the peripheral areas via the surrounding streets. 6.4 Soil conditions In connection with the establishment of the development plan No. 66 Loh station, the soil conditions for the former station area were examined in detail (Mull & Partner GmbH, surface risk detailed investigation (FRIDU) formerly Schwelm-Loh freight yard, Hagen, August 2004). Due to the decades of use as railway, industrial and commercial space, the floors in the entire area of ​​the former train station, i.e. also in the change area, are anthropogenic. In the course of the construction of the railway line, the natural terrain was almost completely covered with fillings. The thickness of the fillings is between 0.1 m and 5.9 m above the natural level of the terrain and can be seen particularly well on the southern edge of the Rheinische Strasse. In the south-east, as part of 9

10 of the above The largest filling thicknesses determined in the expert opinion. A continuous groundwater flow was not found in the soundings. However, mainly in the southeast, the occurrence of stratified / backwater was found locally above the loamy weathering horizon. Only in the northern change area can natural soil conditions be assumed. 6.5 Supply and disposal lines The supply and disposal lines required to supply the change area (including electricity, water, telecommunications, sewage) are located in the adjacent streets and may have to be expanded depending on the planned uses. The area's internal supply and disposal lines will be relocated as part of the development work. 7. Traffic investigation in the Loh train station area In the course of drawing up the development plan No. 66 Loh train station, a traffic investigation was commissioned (author: Schüßler-Plan, Ingenieurgesellschaft für Bau- und Verkehrswegeplanung mbh, traffic investigation Schwelm-Loh, Cologne, June 2005). This traffic study examined what additional traffic volume can be expected from the planned uses and how the area can be connected to the existing road network. Furthermore, it was examined how the expected volume of journeys in motorized traffic is distributed among the surrounding junctions and how the performance of these junctions is to be assessed. As a result, the following recommendations for traffic management were given: Traffic from the industrial park and the mixed areas along Rheinische Strasse should be routed via Loher Strasse to Berliner Strasse (B 7). The eastern section of the Rheinische Straße can be connected to the network of public roads. The handling of traffic is also possible without this section. The western section of Rheinische Strasse (from Loher Strasse to Hattinger Strasse) is to be expanded with an appropriate lane width for truck traffic. The left turn from Rheinische Strasse into Hattinger Strasse (L 551) in the direction of Berliner Strasse (B 7) is to be prevented in order to relieve the junction of Hattinger Strasse / Rheinische Strasse and Hattinger Strasse / Berliner Strasse. Due to the planned changes in use, the traffic situation was examined again as part of a supplementary statement (author: Schüßler-Plan, Ingenieurgesellschaft mbh, development area of ​​the former Schwelm Loh freight yard, performance of the confluence Hattinger Strasse / Rheinische Strasse, Cologne) In the traffic study from 2005, a volume of motor vehicle journeys was forecast for the development area of ​​the MI area north of Rheinische Strasse. For the adjoining GE area (today DHL and Beever & Klopphaus), a total of 250 vehicle journeys per day was forecast. In the traffic survey at the time, it was assumed that the GE area would only be accessible via Prinzenstrasse. With the realization of the DHL and Beever & Klopphaus construction projects, this assumption has changed to the extent that both areas can also be accessed via Rheinische Strasse and Loher Strasse. For the further area development on the areas defined as mixed areas in the development plan, it is now to be estimated which traffic volume can still be efficiently handled at the confluence of Hattinger Strasse and Rheinische Strasse, which is still subject to priority. The following limit value analysis was therefore carried out for this junction: 10

11 In the relevant afternoon hour, a cross-sectional load of approx. 270 vehicles / h (of which approx. 140 vehicles / h in the west direction and approx. 130 vehicles / h in the east direction) can be handled via Rheinische Strasse without the Rheinische Strasse the limit value of the waiting time of quality level D (mean waiting time 45 seconds) is exceeded. There are already longer waiting times, especially for those turning left from Rheinische Strasse. In relation to the GE area to be developed, this corresponds to a traffic volume of approx. 65 vehicles / h in source traffic and 35 vehicles / h in destination traffic in the afternoon (110 vehicles / h in total) of destination and source traffic possible: For use with low daily peaks (e.g. public-intensive services with all-day office hours), an order of magnitude of approx. vehicle journeys / day (total destination and source traffic) can be viewed as the upper limit of tolerability. For use with pronounced daily peaks (e.g. low-public use with fixed working hours by employees), an order of magnitude of approx.300 car journeys / day (total destination and source traffic) can be seen as the upper limit of tolerability. Against the background of this large range, the number of journeys to be expected in the afternoon peak hour should be used for assessment. The observations show that at the confluence there are only small reserves of capacity at peak hours. From an expert's point of view, a usage-related assessment of the expected volume of journeys should therefore be made for every specific construction project. This expert recommendation is followed in the context of the specific building permit process. 8. Contents of the planning 8.1 Type and extent of structural use Type of structural use In the future, the area of ​​change is to be developed primarily for residential, service and commercial uses that are not significantly disruptive to living. In accordance with these objectives, sub-areas are defined with a different type of structural use. In order to secure the planned residential uses, general residential areas (WA) have been established in the northern section of the planning area. In the sections bordering Hattinger Strasse and Rheinische Strasse, various mixed areas (MI 1-4) have been established based on the existing uses and the stipulations of the development plan no. 66 Bahnhof Loh. The permissible uses correspond to the uses already determined and are therefore not justified again. Degree of structural use The degree of structural use is determined in the legally effective development plan No. 66 Loh station by stipulating the base and floor area, the permissible number of full storeys and the maximum permissible building height. Compared to the previously fixed building heights, the building heights in the general residential area will be increased from a maximum of 10 m to 13 m in order to ensure greater scope for design in the construction of the planned residential buildings. In MI 4 there is also an 11

12 Increase in the maximum permissible building height from 10 m to 12 m. Furthermore, III instead of II full storeys will be permitted here in the future. The fixed base and floor area figures, however, will not be increased. 8.2 Construction method and plot area that can be built over As single and semi-detached houses are primarily intended in the plan area, an open construction method is predominantly stipulated in accordance with 22 BauNVO. The open construction method limits the length of the structures to a maximum of 50 m while maintaining a lateral limit distance. The areas that can be built over are defined by the front and rear construction limits. These will be expanded compared to the previous state in order to allow more flexible development options. Here, too, the stipulated base and floor area numbers are not increased. 8.3 Traffic development Development for private traffic The surrounding local roads are basically retained, but various structural and traffic law measures are planned within and outside the scope of the development plan No. 66 Loh station. These are the following measures: In the western Rheinische Strasse on the north side of the street a park and green strip for tree planting and the construction of a carriageway with a width of 6.5 m are planned. The eastern Rheinische Strasse is tied off by the network of public roads between Prinzenstrasse and Loher Strasse, instead a commercial building area is designated here. In the area of ​​Loher Strasse, in addition to a 4.00 m wide carriageway, the construction of a 3.00 m wide sidewalk and bike path will be secured by planning law by defining public traffic areas. The one-way street direction in Loher Straße (currently driving direction south north) will be reversed. The intersection between Loher Strasse and Berliner Strasse (B 7) has to be slightly redesigned due to the reversal of the one-way street. A new public road (Planstrasse WA) is required for the inner development of the area. The new access road branching off from Linderhauser Straße (Planstraße WA) is marked in the western section with a width of 9.50 m (division: 5.50 m lane, 2.00 m parking lane / tree bed, 2.00 m sidewalk) and is Sufficiently dimensioned here for a truck / car encounter (at reduced speed). The eastern part of the planned road WA is set as a special traffic area with the purpose of a traffic-calmed area and is to be designed as a mixed traffic area. The planned width of the mixed traffic area is 6.00 m. After completion, the planned road WA is to be designated as a traffic-calmed area, marked with the signs 325 and 326 of the Road Traffic Regulations (StVO). Linderhauser Strasse is to be widened to a width of 6.5 m between Herdstrasse and Hattinger Strasse. In addition, walkways with a width of 2.0 m each are planned on both sides. 12th

13 These measures also apply to the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station, provided they are in the area of ​​change. In addition, as part of the first amendment to the development plan, a walking, driving and line right is changed to a traffic-calmed spur road to MI 3. From the turning hammer of this traffic-calmed spur road, a right to walk is set in favor of the general public, which leads to plan street A. This path, which is to be expanded here, ensures an attractive walking connection in the direction of Berliner Straße and the city center. 8.4 Parking spaces, visitor parking spaces During the structural implementation, evidence of the necessary private parking spaces must be provided on the respective private property in accordance with the provisions of 51 BauO NRW. Due to the differently stipulated type of structural use, the following regulations are made for the building areas in accordance with the parking space and replacement statutes of the city of Schwelm from 1998. General residential areas The parking space and replacement statutes of the city of Schwelm provide for two parking spaces for single-family houses and three parking spaces for two-family houses. Accordingly, the development concept provides for two parking spaces per residential building in the general residential areas. Parking spaces, carports and garages are therefore permitted in the building-over property areas as well as in the spaces between the main buildings. Mixed areas In the mixed areas, the regulation also applies that parking spaces, carports and garages are permitted in the plot areas that can be built over as well as in the spaces between the main buildings. Due to the generously proportioned building windows and the additional parking spaces, there is sufficient space in reserve for stationary traffic. Parking spaces in the public street space Publicly accessible parking spaces are available in Rheinische Straße and Planstraße WA. A separate park and green strip will be created in Rheinische Strasse. Depending on the future private property driveways, up to 35 new parking spaces will be created. In the new plan road WA, parking spaces are provided depending on the private property entrances, whereby there is the option of creating additional parking spaces within the traffic area in the mixed traffic area and highlighting them with design elements (e.g. different paving tapes) within the scope of the implementation planning . 8.5 Local building regulations In order to ensure a uniform design of semi-detached houses, the inclination, color and material of the roof surfaces must be coordinated. In order to avoid the unpleasant glare effect of glossy roof coverings, the roofs should only be covered with unglazed and non-glare roofing materials. Based on the buildings in the vicinity, the roof forms saddle roof, flat roof and monopitch roof are permitted. In order to preserve the appearance of the place and in coordination with the surrounding landscape, supply and disposal lines must be laid underground for design reasons. This also applies to lines used for telecommunications. 13th

14 9. Supply and disposal of the planning area 9.1 Supplying the planning area The supply networks for communication as well as energy and water supply are available in the surrounding settlement areas and can be expanded to supply the area if necessary. Extinguishing water supply In the event of a fire, up to 192 cubic meters of extinguishing water are generally available from the supply network over a period of approx. Two hours, depending on the location of the supply line. 9.2 Drainage of the planning area After examining the existing soils and the pollution situation, earlier investigations have already shown that the rainwater occurring in the change area cannot be infiltrated. A diversion into a local body of water z. B. in the cased Schwelme, which runs approx. 3 m below the current street area of ​​the Rheinische Strasse is problematic for various reasons, since for water protection reasons, in some cases, a pre-treatment of the accumulating rainwater and, if necessary, the installation of backwater basins or backwater canals on the private property would have to take place. The resulting rainwater should therefore be fed into the existing sewer system. The following reasons are decisive: Due to the existing hillside location, unfavorable hydrogeological conditions prevail, the existing backfills and embankments make calculable infiltration difficult, and contamination cannot be ruled out due to the locally occurring soil pollution. Therefore, permanent seepage of the accumulating rainwater is not recommended and is still classified as disproportionate from a technical and economic point of view. 10. Immission control In the area of ​​application of the development plan No. 66 Loh train station, noise emissions must be expected due to the classified Hattinger Strasse, the existing commercial operations in the south and the new commercial uses. For this reason, a noise protection report was commissioned as part of the development plan No. 66 Bahnhof Loh for the purpose of determining and evaluating possible noise immissions as well as the formulation of any necessary noise protection measures (RWTÜV, noise immissions from road traffic and commercial facilities in the development plan area of ​​the former freight station Schwelm-Loh, Essen, November 2004). The investigation includes the immissions from road traffic, the noise emissions from the existing commercial establishments and the possible emissions from the future commercial building areas. On the basis of the results, several graphical and textual determinations were included in the development plan no. 66 Bahnhof Loh. These also apply to the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station and have therefore been adopted unchanged. 14th

15 11. Pollutants / Suspected Areas As part of an expert investigation for the former Schwelm-Loh railway station, the Ingenieurgesellschaft Mull & Partner GmbH carried out a detailed area risk investigation, evaluated the results and examined possible effects on the land-use planning process. A total of 64 small ram holes were sunk up to 6 m deep. Of these, 12 soundings were developed as temporary soil air measuring points. A total of 86 individual soil samples, 6 mixed soil samples and 12 soil air samples were chemically examined. While the soil air only contains slightly increased amounts of BTEX in one level, in the soil samples z. In some cases, significant contamination was found, which is summarized in the following, broken down into sub-areas: In the plan area that is almost completely covered with backfills, backfill-related loads must be expected, which, however, do not endanger the protected property in the change area. In these areas, there is no marking in the development plan due to the fact that there is no endangerment of the protected property. For areas overplanned with sensitive use (residential areas / mixed areas), depending on the detailed planning, an exchange of contaminated materials or materials unsuitable for the construction of house gardens, sealing (e.g. street / parking lot areas) or, alternatively, an additional floor application of suitable Top and bottom materials are carried out. The coverage and expert support are to be regulated in the building permit process. In the event of a higher-quality or more sensitive subsequent use than the currently planned commercial use, a reassessment of the contaminated site should be carried out in the area of ​​the commercial building areas. In addition, in this case the suspected area marked in the development plan should be provided with a cover at least 1.0 m thick, depending on the planned subsequent use, so that even deeper-rooted garden plants do not reach the contaminated area. The surface risk detail investigation (FRIDU) from 2004 and the investigation into cavity exploration from 2016 have worked out that the planned uses are harmless from a soil chemical point of view (contaminated sites) and from a soil mechanical point of view (sinkhole risk). In addition, it must be specified for the construction project in the building permit procedure that the necessary earthworks are to be accompanied by an expert, as part of a so-called soil management. With this land management, any imponderables can be counteracted at an early stage through targeted measures, such as soil replacement or overburden. 12. Interests of nature and landscape Due to the chosen procedure according to 13a BauGB (building plan for interior development), no environmental assessment and no additional nature conservation law intervention balance is mandatory. The determination of the interference developed in the context of the legally effective development plan No. 66 Loh station will also apply in the future to the sub-areas located in the area of ​​change, as there are no significant changes to the previous determinations. It can be assumed that the determination of the interference is more advantageous, since only a few planting requirements have been spatially shifted and their extent has been expanded. Thus, at least an arithmetical reduction in the deficit can be assumed. The present plans are not expected to have any significant negative effects on the environment, as the development plan only ensures the development and new use of an area that has already been over-planned in the interior. 15th

16 After weighing up the advantages and disadvantages, a new use of well-developed indoor areas that are connected to local public transport turns out to be the planning alternative with a significantly lower environmental impact than would be the case with the use of previously undeveloped open spaces in the external planning area. Decisive for this are the existing interior development and the maintenance or creation of open spaces within the town (planting ties and planting requirements). 13. Issues of species protection The consideration of species protection issues is based on two expert reports. The species protection law technical article / ASP (level 1) summarizes the following recommendations: Ecological construction supervision The implementation of B-Plan No. 66 will take place gradually over a longer period of time, in which further modifications of the project, the construction time window but also further updates / changes are to be expected in the fauna in the planning area. It is therefore recommended to have the successive implementation of the development plan accompanied by ecological construction supervision in order to be able to deal with aspects relevant to species protection law in a timely manner. The ecological construction supervision is particularly involved in the following implementation steps: Determination of low-conflict construction time windows (clearing and clearing of the project areas, earthworks) Examination of species relevant to planning (tree pipit, sand lizard) Tree cave mapping These species protection recommendations are not taken into account in the determination catalog of the legally binding development plan No. 66 The recommended avoidance measures are therefore integrated into the stipulations of the 1st amendment to the development plan No. 66 Loh station. In addition, further information on the necessary species protection measures has been included in the plan. These statements and stipulations for the development plan no. 66 Bahnhof Loh have been supplemented as part of the 1st amendment to the development plan by an updated statement by the Schwelm Environmental Protection Association (AGU) dated. The updated statement by the AGU comes to the conclusion that the planned projects are permissible from a species protection point of view. 14. Notes The following notes have been included in the 1st amendment to the development plan no. 66 Loh train station: Archaeological finds in the ground It is pointed out that soil monuments can be discovered when soil encroachments. Ground encroachments are all types of earthworks, B. Excavations, excavations, drilling, pile driving and sheet piling. Soil monuments can be: objects and fragments of objects, remains of buildings, cavities, bones and bone splinters, changes and discoloration of the natural soil structure 16

17 as well as imprints of animal or vegetable life.The discovery of ground monuments must be reported immediately to the Lower Monument Authority of the city of Schwelm, Tel .: and the LWL Archeology for Westphalia, Olpe branch, (Tel, Fax). The site of discovery must be kept unchanged for three working days (15 and 16 Monument Protection Act of North Rhine-Westphalia), if it is not approved beforehand by the monument authorities. The Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe is entitled to recover and evaluate the soil monument and to take possession of it for up to 6 months for scientific research (16 para. 4 DSchG NW). Species protection In order to prevent avoidable impairments or prohibitions according to the Federal Nature Conservation Act (BNatSchG), the following must be observed: The special species protection according to 44 ff. BNatSchG exists all year round. Therefore, all woody plants to be cleared (trees, bushes, etc.) must be examined for nests, breeding caves or other animal roosts immediately before they are removed. In the event of a find, the Lower Landscape Authority of the Ennepe-Ruhr district must be involved. In the period from March 1st to September 30th, according to 39 (5) BNatSchG, it is forbidden to cut trees that are outside the forest of short rotation plantations or horticultural green areas, hedges, living fences, bushes and other trees or to move towards the cane put. In the event of demolition measures on existing buildings, attention should be paid to any bat roosts that may be present. Flat roofs, roller shutter boxes, verge and facade cladding, etc., are suitable as bat roosts. must therefore be opened by hand as part of construction work and examined with regard to bats and / or bat roosts. In the event of a find, the Lower Landscape Authority of the Ennepe-Ruhr district must be involved. DIN standards The DIN standard sheets mentioned in connection with the stipulations of the development plan can be viewed at the city development office (StEB) of the city of Schwelm. 15. Land arrangement The areas in the area to be changed are divided into plots that are suitable for building and developed on the basis of the urban planning. Public-law land-tidying measures in accordance with 45 ff. BauGB are therefore not required. 16. Monument protection, soil preservation There are no monuments registered in the list of monuments of the city of Schwelm and no archaeological sites are known within the area of ​​change.
