German term or phrase: überplanen
The idea isn't overplanning, but simply planning or rezoning I think. The context: "Nach Auskunft der zuständigen Verbandsgemeinde Lingenfeld und Einsicht in den regionalen Raumordnungsplan ist bei keinem der Grundstücke eine Überplanung mit Bauen oder dergleichen vorgesehen, was den Wert beträchtlich beeinflussen würde. Es handelt sich nur um reines Acker- bzw. Wiesengelände."

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

English translation:rezoning
Explanation:
(I just HAD to add my two cents' worth here -- we used to hike to Lingenfeld... so this brings back memories.)

I'd go with your idea "rezoning" rather than planning since the re in rezoning indicates that a change in zoning status might have been contemplated, and that's the sense I get from the prefix über in Überplanung. Knowing Lingenfeld and its environs, I wouldn't use the phrase "urban development", either - it is quite rural and would require a whole lot of development in order to become anything even close to urban... :-)

HTH!

planning


Explanation:
I agree with your own suggestion. It sounds in fact like its refering to planning. No construction or similar type of plans are intended or projected that could alter the value...
