Nürburgring (Ahrweiler district, Daun district), Nürburgring experience

Nürburgring GmbH was planning an upgrading of the world famous race track for more market segments. Amongst other things a retail area was planned to be created, in which predominantly motor-sport related articles would be sold. There would be no large retail outlets, but when added together the result would be a large retail area, which would not be in accord with the Rheinland-Pfalz state development programme III. The plans ran contrary to the agglomerations rule, the urban development rule and the concentration rule.

igr prepared the documentation for the planning permission variation process for Nürburgring GmbH and created the documentation for the proceedings, which resulted in a positive outcome for the undertaking.
