Applications for traffic-law orders can only be submitted by e-mail to

For any works or events causing an impairment of public places (roads, sidewalks, bike paths, etc.), a traffic-law order / special-use permit as well as, if necessary, a corresponding event permit has to be obtained; such permit includes, for example, the requirements for securing and signposting a construction / event site. This is particularly relevant in the following cases:

  • Excavation works
  • Erection of scaffoldings
  • Placing of construction waste containers
  • Storage of construction material
  • Setting up a temporary parking restriction (e.g. when moving in or moving out)   
  • Closing of a road

Please note that the application needs to be submitted at least 14 workdays prior to the beginning of the relevant event to

Documents required for the application

  • Application for traffic-law orders
  • Informative plan of the site including relevant signs (marking of areas required for containers, construction site equipment, etc., location of the construction site, type and location of traffic signs to be installed)
  • Particularly in case of applications filed by companies: signage plan, applicable traffic sign plan, plan showing detour signs in case of complete closure of a road (incl. all necessary traffic signs)
  • Site plan with marking of all areas used for construction site

We generally expect the applicant to be informed about the local situation and about the relevance of the application. It is necessary to submit an informative and recognizable signage / site plan already when filing the application. The application can only be processed when the relevant signage / site plan has been submitted. Please note that an additional fee might be charged in case the processing of your application has required extra effort due to incomplete documents submitted. Therefore make sure to submit all relevant necessary documents together with the application.

Functional Area: Sewerage Development Contributions

Sewerage development contributions - What is it and what is it used for?

The town of Herzogenaurach maintains a sewerage system (tunnels) and a modern sewage plant. This is an advantage for all estates that have the possibility to be connected with this sewerage system.
Therefore the town administration charges a fee that compensates for this advantage and eventually settles the expenses caused by the installation and maintenance of the sewerage system.

There are one-time fees as well as regular contributions.

The calculation of such fees and contributions is based on the Regulations on Contributions and Fees (BGS-EWS) in connection with the Sewerage Regulations (EWS) of the Town of Herzogenaurach.

Calculation of contributions - What are the criteria for the calculation of the contributions?

The contributions are calculated on the basis of the size of the plot area
Floor area

The floor area is determined by the external dimensions of the buildings on all floors.
Attic floors are subject to the calculation of contributions as far as they have been developed.

In case the floor area is extended (e.g. by development of an attic floor or by adding a winter garden), the town administration has to be informed correspondingly as soon as the relevant construction measures have been completed. 

Subject to contributions - Which estates are subject to contributions?

The following estates are subject to the contributions:

  • Estates with buildings or suitable for buildings
  • Estates under commercial use or suitable for commercial use
  • Other areas where wastewater is actually produced

The obligation to pay the contribution is established with the completion of the relevant construction measures and is due one month after receipt of the demand for payment.
