German to English translations [Non-PRO] Law/Patents - Construction / Civil Engineering
German term or phrase:Planfeststellungsverfahren
used mainly in the building sector before something is built.
Explanation: The general term used by British authorities for a project I took care of in England for a German company was "process for granting planning permission". This depends of course on the stage of planning you are. If the documents are prepared and have already been submitted for official approval, this could also refer to the meeting involved before the approval has been granted.
