A “massive statement” against the planned large asylum accommodation in Trifthof has alarmed Weilheim’s building committee.

The matter could become “a case for the court,” it was now said in the town hall.

Weilheim

- The district wants to accommodate a total of up to 300 asylum seekers and war refugees in former buildings of the company Xylem/WTW in Weilheim's Trifthof industrial area - and so, for example, avoid the use of gymnasiums for this purpose.

The city initially wanted to make this project possible through “exemption”.

However, current law conflicted with this, which is why the more complex route of changing the development plan had to be taken (we reported).

But even that is not unproblematic, as the city council's building committee has now shown.

Lawyer complains about simplified procedure

As part of the public participation, “a massive response from the neighborhood” was received, said Manfred Stork, head of the city’s building administration, at the most recent meeting.

The lawyer of a resident complained that the chosen “simplified procedure” was not possible in this case and that the change would create “urban development problems”.

But the city planning department remains of the opinion that the accommodation plans “do not represent a significant change to the basic features of the development plan,” emphasized Stork - especially since they would be limited until the end of 2049 at the most.

After all, accommodation establishments have already been permitted there as an exception.

The accusation that the “simplified procedure” is not the right way should still be taken seriously, demanded CSU spokeswoman Marion Lunz-Schmieder.

Simply continuing like this is “risky”.

For 3rd Mayor Alfred Honisch (Greens) “it smells like a new case for the administrative court”.

And a legal dispute “in case of doubt costs the city a lot of money,” added Klaus Gast (CSU).

The two CSU representatives on the building committee also personally reject the accommodation plans.

In their opinion, the area “at the end of the city and without connections” is the wrong location for it.

The development plan procedure will not be changed

Horst Martin expressed himself differently: the administration's argument made sense to him, the planned accommodation was “not a significant change in use,” said the SPD representative.

The city currently “does not have to respond further” to the lawyer’s letter mentioned and the process should continue as planned.

If necessary, this “can be changed at any time later,” explained construction administration manager Stork.

For Mayor Markus Loth (BfW), this would not necessarily reduce the risk of a legal dispute, as he said: “If someone wants to sue, they will do so anyway.”

Loth nevertheless had the building committee vote on whether the development plan procedure should be changed - which the committee rejected against the votes of the two CSU representatives.

The administration's consideration of the comments received was then approved by a majority.

In addition to Lunz-Schmieder and Gast, Luise Nowak (Greens) also voted against it.

BfW spokeswoman Brigitte Holeczek had previously expressed her anger about a sentence in the lawyer's letter mentioned.

The lawyer complained that it was unclear how “the safety of the working population in particular can be ensured” when used as asylum accommodation, Holeczek quoted – and said: “Seeing asylum seekers accommodation per se as a security risk outrages and upsets me “Me.” Such an assessment is also “not covered” by the police’s security reports.
