Municipal boundary reform / voluntary mergers

We advise and represent municipalities in the area of municipal boundary reform and voluntary municipality mergers, in particular in the following areas:

  • Matters relating to “incorporation” within the context of municipal boundary reform, in particular the representation of municipalities in the necessary hearings
  • Voluntary municipal mergers, in particular the drafting of reports regarding their legal implications for the municipalities in question
  • Provision of support to municipalities in the event of resident hearings that may need to be held prior to changes to the municipal boundary
  • Drafting of corresponding agreements regarding the realisation of voluntary mergers by means of integration, unification or restructuring, in close cooperation with the legal supervisory authorities and through participation in municipal council meetings
  • Representation of the municipality in subsequent procedures with legal supervisory authorities
