Detailed plans

Detailed and planning permission plans for the construction work

The re-irrigation of areas which were drained during peat cutting was intended to halt the growth of scrub and prevent the Weidmoos becoming overgrown. On the basis of the existing management plan, plans for the necessary dam construction work have been drawn up so that planning permission could be obtained and the work be carried out. Additional surveys of the land and analyses of the subsoil were carried out for this purpose. These detailed plans, together with the plans for submission for planning consent, needed to be drawn up before the necessary permissions for water-related and woodland-related work could be obtained, and before the planned construction work could be put out to tender and carried out.

Detailed permission plans for landscaping

Most of the existing areas of standing water which were created by the peat cutting process had monotonous banks characterised by straight lines. Small-scale landscaping works created, at relatively low cost, more interestingly structured bank areas which now provide an optimal habitat for many bird species. The detailed plans describing the planned landscaping works had to be drawn up for submission for planning consent and implementation of the work.

Detailed and planning permission plans for visitor facilities

In order to make the Weidmoos accessible for interested visitors while disturbing the bird life as little as possible, a discovery trail, information centre and viewing tower was planned in the southern part of the moor. Detailed plans had to be drawn up for submission for planning consent and implementation of the work.

Detailed and planning permission plans for ongoing maintenance

In order to maintain the Weidmoos bird habitats in the long term, regular maintenance will need to be carried out in addition to the dam construction work and landscaping. Such work will be particularly necessary in the peripheral areas of the Weidmoos which are insufficiently irrigated or not irrigated at all. Detailed plans have been drawn up for the maintenance measures described in the existing management plan for the Weidmoos; the work to be undertaken has been co-ordinated with the dam construction and landscaping work and the plans have been optimised and are now ready for regular implementation.
