Planning approval procedure


Approval of projects

Permission must be sought (in the form of a concession) for each new project and renovation project at Zurich Airport. As the supervision of airport construction and operation is a federal matter, the planning permit process is governed by Swiss aviation law.

The following procedures are implemented at Zurich Airport:

 

Ordinary procedure (Art. 37 of the Federal Civil Aviation Act)
Any construction projects that may affect the interests of third parties (e.g. residents, environmental protection, etc.) are subject to the ordinary procedure.

Simplified procedure (Art. 37i of the Federal Civil Aviation Act)
Unlike the ordinary procedure, the simplified procedure is not publicised and is applied in accordance with Art. 37i of the Federal Civil Aviation Act for the following projects:

  • Localised projects with few, clearly identifiable affected parties 
  • Modifications to or conversions of buildings or facilities that do not significantly alter their external appearance nor affect the protected interests of third parties, and that have only a minimal impact on spatial and environmental aspects

Permit-free construction project (Art. 28 of the Federal Ordinance on Civil Aviation Infrastructure)
The term „permit-free construction project“ does not mean that certain construction projects can be carried out without permission! It simply means that the respective construction project may be implemented without planning permission from FOCA/DETEC. Art. 28 of the Federal Ordinance on Civil Aviation Infrastructure outlines the construction projects which fall into this category.

Secondary structures (cantonal construction project) (Art. 29 of the Federal Ordinance on Civil Aviation Infrastructure)
Secondary structures are buildings and facilities that have only a minimal impact, if any, on airport operations. Planning permission for such construction projects must be in accordance with the cantonal planning permit process. The involvement of the federal authorities is governed by Art. 29 of the Federal Ordinance on Civil Aviation Infrastructure.
