Period of validity
The permit is valid for three years. The permit expires if the validity period is not extended for a special reason.
The owner or holder of a land area must apply for a landscape work permit in order to carry out earth works, tree-felling or similar action altering the landscape in areas covered by a local detailed plan. A landscape work permit is also required in areas covered by a local master plan, if the plan so requires.
The decision on the application is taken by the authority designated for the task by the municipality. No landscape work permit is required to fell individual trees for the purpose of caring for plots. Neither is a landscape work permit required for actions that are related to an issued building permit or action permit.
