The majority of the Gmund local council is against a new definition of the landscape protection area in its area.

He sees the protection of the landscape as guaranteed by other regulations.

Gmund

– The result of 16:5 votes in the well-attended Gmund municipal council meeting was preceded by an almost hour-long, mostly objective debate.

From the beginning, a split into two camps became apparent: the supporters of the new definition of the landscape protection areas (LSG) from the Greens and the SPD faction on the one hand, and the CSU and Free Voters factions on the other hand, who rejected a new definition.

FWG local council: District office follows the path of least resistance

Gmund is one of the last district municipalities to take a stand on the district's proceedings.

Georg Rabl (FWG) criticized the landscape protection regulations per se, which were imposed on the communities 70 years ago and are therefore no longer suitable today.

Rabl accused the district office of taking the path of least resistance instead of developing something new for the entire district.

Group colleague Christine Zierer considered the absence of the eastern communities in the previous statutes to be “arbitrariness”.

In addition, a new decree would result in even more administrative tasks: “We manage and manage and manage ourselves.

“When will this end?” she said angrily.

Control of farmers is almost tantamount to expropriation

Hans Huber, Martina Ettstaller and Tobias Bauer (all CSU) also criticized the regulations and controls on agricultural and mostly private land: “The restrictions in agriculture are no longer acceptable,” said farmer Huber and pointed to the merits of the farmers landscape maintenance.

Ettstaller also complained that farmers were being controlled to such an extent that it was almost tantamount to expropriation.

She emphasized that the LSG restricts the communities' development and is "not sustainable".

Bauer found the LSG too vague.

In addition, building is regulated anyway.

This also does not curb the leisure pressure.

Green Party Councilor Schack warns: “Property is an obligation”

Laura Wagner (Greens) regretted that farmers felt attacked by the LSG and warned against lumping together the many other regulations with landscape protection.

This is definitely effective in counteracting the construction pressure.

Her parliamentary group colleague Michael Huber was even convinced that the LSG was the only regulation that protected the area extensively: “The Landscape Protection Ordinance helped more than it hurt,” said Huber and was convinced that no farmer had imposed a restriction in the past 70 years experienced landscape protection.

Group colleague Andrea Schack sought the Bavarian Constitution, which stipulates that agricultural land serves the people as a whole: “Property is an obligation,” she warned and was convinced that the LSG only brought advantages.

Hans Schmid and Barbara von Miller from the SPD also stuck with it: They supported the regulation, which has been in force for 70 years, as a comprehensive one that does not restrict community development.

Miller considered agriculture to be “protected from privilege.”

Mayor Besel sees LSG as a violation of equal treatment

During the dynamic discussion it became clear that everyone involved from all factions consider the local landscape to be absolutely worthy of protection.

“There are just different views on how to get there,” said Mayor Alfons Besel, who also had concerns.

On the one hand, because there are “no technical, only historical reasons” why certain areas are not considered.

Besel saw this as a violation of equal treatment.

And on the other hand, because the communities currently do not know specifically what the district council will decide and how the legislature will design the regulation.

Roll-call vote: 16 councilors against new designation of the LSG

In the roll-call vote requested by Ettstaller, 16 councilors voted against the LSG.

The decision states that no need is seen due to the diverse regulations in other laws.

In the event that the designation continues, all but the three Green councilors voted that developed land, the development areas shown in the land use plan and standard development plan procedures should be removed from the LSG.

In return, agricultural use should be included for protective purposes.
