Project ePlan – electronic plan approval procedure

The Office for Municipalities and Regional Planning (AGR) plans to introduce the electronic plan approval procedure ePlan in the canton of Bern from 2022. After the test phase (pilot) in autumn 2020, the platform is currently being further developed. On September 22, 2021, the government council decided that the changes to the building law and the approval decree will come into force on March 1, 2022

project description

With ePlan, the procedure for issuing land use plans in the canton of Bern will be simplified and will be handled electronically in the future. The test phase (pilot) was carried out in autumn 2020 with the municipalities of Burgdorf, Gondiswil, Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen and Saanen. Once the legal basis for electronic communication with authorities has come into force, the plan approval process can be carried out entirely electronically.

Project duration: 2015 – 2021 / implementation 2018 – 2021
