Municipalities may, by means of bylaws, issue local building regulations within their own sphere of action concerning the number, size and quality of parking spaces for motor vehicles and parking spaces for bicycles, including the provision of electric charging stations, additional requirements in the event of alterations and changes in the use of facilities, as well as the redemption of the obligation to provide parking spaces and the amount of the redemption, which may be regulated differently according to the type of use and location of the facility.

This (Art 47 (1), editor's note) does not apply if otherwise the creation or renewal of housing would be significantly impeded or prevented, even taking into account the possibility of replacement under paragraph 3 No. 3. (3) The parking space obligation can be fulfilled by

1. construction of the necessary parking spaces on the building plot,
2. construction of the necessary parking spaces on a suitable plot of land in the vicinity of the building plot, if its use for this purpose is legally secured vis-à-vis the legal entity of the building supervisory authority, or
3. assumption of the costs for the construction of the necessary parking spaces by the developer vis-à-vis the municipality (transfer agreement).


(2) The number of parking spaces required in accordance with paragraph 1 sentence 1 shall be determined by the State Ministry of the Interior, Building and Transport by statutory order.
