A development plan is a binding land-use plan that regulates development in a specific area. Whereas the land use plan only contains binding representations of the basic principles of land use, the provisions of a development plan regulate the structural and other use of land in detail and in a generally binding manner. As a rule, the development plan is to be developed from the land use plan.
According to the principles laid down in the German Federal Building Code (BauGB), urban land use plans should also contribute to ensuring an environment worthy of human beings and to protecting and developing the natural foundations of life. Therefore, urban land use planning is usually accompanied by landscape planning for nature conservation and regularly includes a separate environmental report.
