Unbuilt areas have no or almost no buildings or technical plants. Hunting and emergency huts are allowed as long as their number is compatible with the overall zoning of the areas.
Overall provisions for each subarea can be accessed below.
Provisions and subareas
The overall provisions for each subarea are the basis for the municipality's granting of area allotments and building permits.
As an exception, recreational huts can be established in O areas as long as their number is compatible with the overall zoning of the areas. In O areas, recreational huts are to be at least 1,000 metres apart. Recreational huts are also to keep a minimum distance of 1,000 metres of K, L and N areas and of town and settlement areas.
The following guidelines apply to the different types of huts:
|Recreational hut||Private||Max. 20 m2||2 storeys max. 7.5 m||Planning permission**||+ area allotment|
|Emergency-/hunting hut||Public access||No provisions||1 storeys max. 5.5 m||Planning permission*****||+ area allotment|
** "Recreational huts" do not usually need to be processed as construction project applications, unless the building authority judges that an exception is needed and that a construction project application process is need in an individual case.
***** "Emergency/hunting huts" need usually only be processed as construction project applications when the building authority judges that it is necessary in an individual case.
O areas are classified into:
- O1: Unbuilt natural areas
- O2: Areas for extensive grazing
- O3: Unspoiled natural areas.
O1: Unbuilt natural areas
Areas without planning are unspoiled or almost unspoiled land without buildings and technical plants. As a main rule, there is a five-kilometre buffer zone around all measures in the open country.
O2: Areas for extensive grazing
Areas zoned for extensive grazing by livestock, such as sheep, reindeer, horses, cattle or other domestic animals, where land use intensity is compatible with the overall zoning of the areas.
