Request information from the contaminated site or soil protection cadastre

Would you like to know whether there is a suspicion of contaminated sites or harmful soil changes on a property? Then you can apply for information from the contaminated site cadastre to the competent authority.

Suspected contaminated sites are, on the one hand, land belonging to disused businesses/plants and other land on which environmentally hazardous substances have been handled (old sites) and, on the other hand, land of decommissioned waste disposal facilities and other land on which waste has been treated, stored or deposited (old deposits).

The competent authority shall keep a register of contaminated sites in which areas suspected of being contaminated sites are registered.

For various reasons, a property owner or a person with a legitimate interest needs information as to whether there is a possible suspicion of contaminated sites for a property. For this purpose, you can submit an application to the competent authority for information from the contaminated site cadastre.

In order to provide the information to persons who are not themselves the owners of the requested property, a power of attorney from the owner must be submitted.

An application is required, which requires the following information:

  • Your name and address,
  • the exact name with address and/or municipal area, parcel and parcel number of the parcel concerned,
  • if necessary, add a site plan,
  • attach a power of attorney from the property owner if the property is not your property.

If the applicant is not the owner of the property: power of attorney of the property owner

  • Form name: planned
  • If necessary, link to the aforementioned form:
  • Online procedure possible: in planning
  • Written form required: yes
  • Personal appearance required: no

Preconditions

If you are not the owner of the property for which you are applying for information from the cadastre of contaminated sites, you must attach a power of attorney from the property owner to the application.
