Nature conservation: authorisation to intervene, compensatory and replacement measures Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The aim of nature conservation is to preserve nature and landscape on the basis of their own value and as a livelihood for human beings. Since serious impairments or even destruction of nature and landscape can have serious negative consequences for humans, in addition to the protection of the landscape, in particular the preservation, restoration and long-term and sustainable usability of the natural household. Anyone wishing to carry out a project that alters the use or shape of the environment and which can significantly affect the natural environment or the landscape - in particular through construction measures - usually requires an intervention permit. In doing so, the associated impairments of the natural balance and the landscape must be kept to a minimum. Unavoidable impairments must be compensated in the same way, depending on the situation, either by measures of nature conservation and landscape conservation or to be compensated equivalently by replacement measures. Special, relaxed regulations apply to building plans and in the unplanned interior. In addition to the authorisation to intervene, many other nature protection permits may be required today (e.g. species protection, biotope protection, Fauna-Flora-Habitat Directive or Birds Directive, protected area regulations). Projects in Natura 2000 sites that do not require further authorisation may be subject to notification

In the application, an intervention compensation plan must be submitted in accordance with the Compensation Ordinance.
