Wolfratshausen - The grandfathering of the dementia center of the Workers' Welfare Association (AWO) on Paradiesweg, which has been proven by the district office, is only valid until 2026.
The facility, which was built in 1981, no longer complies with the implementing provisions of the Bavarian Housing and Care Quality Act. The search for a suitable plot of land for a new building seemed to have already ended in 2021.
Dementia center can probably not be realized next to business park
At that time, the building committee commissioned the Planning Association for the Outer Economic Area of Munich to examine an area of about 14,000 square meters north of the An der Loisach industrial park. Two years later, the building committee had to deal with the sobering result.
According to Sebastian Sens from the city's Planning & Environment Department, the "noise quotas" emanating from surrounding companies lead to "immission control problems". Sens recommended that the procedure for the development plan No. 87 "Dementia Center" be discontinued and that the administration be instructed to search for a "more suitable plot".
Wolfatshauser building committee does not want to give up location - sound insulation should fix it
There was resistance to this. "We should not give up this place and check whether, perhaps, a noise barrier can be erected there," Hans Schmidt (Greens) demanded a postponement of the application.
Gerlinde Berchtold (SPD) recalled the long planning process, as the city council had already dealt with the development of the property next to Äußere Beuerberger Straße in September 2020. "I'm not raising my hand for the funeral of the zoning plan," she clarified.
In Berchtold's view, noise protection measures could very well contribute to a reduction in the noise quota. In addition, the AWO would only need about half of the area for its new building and could move a little further away from the boundaries of the business park.
Parliamentary group colleague Fritz Schnaller agreed with Berchtold. "The AWO is so important that we should work out the sound insulation again," he explained. City hall employee Sebastian Sens and Mayor Klaus Heilinglechner (Citizens' Association) pointed out that higher protection claims apply to assisted living and that even representatives of the AWO have moved away from their project in their oral statements during a recent inspection with the district office. In addition, the city would be liable for damages if the immission control values were disregarded.

Mayor Heilinglechner already has other places in mind for the AWO
According to Heilinglechner, the city has already proposed other plots of land to the AWO. However, the ongoing decision-making process cannot yet be debated publicly. Deputy Mayor Günther Eibl (CSU) welcomes this development. "The administration should now expend energies to look for alternatives," he demanded.
Nevertheless, Berchtold, Schnaller and Schmidt asked that the procedure for the previous "Development Plan No. 87" not yet be discontinued. Eibl successfully applied for an amendment to the proposed resolution. Accordingly, the development plan is suspended until there is a clear written statement from the AWO district management regarding the continuation of the plan. The building committee also voted unanimously to commission the administration to look for a more suitable site.
