Medicine against Zurich einzonung stop is found

"After much wrangling, the adoption of a successful compromise unanimously", according to the building Committee of the Kantonsrats today is Friday. This is good news for all the city planners and potential home buyers. Because recently the Federal government for the whole of the Canton of Zurich had imposed a einzonung stop.

reason: Zurich lagged behind in the implementation of the spatial planning act and missed the deadline. Specifically, each Canton until 1 had to. May value to compensate for A - and Aufzonungen decide what was in Zurich to date. This requires only surprised, but to a lot of money. The municipalities want to skim off naturally as much as possible, in order to cover their costs for the additional infrastructure, such as roads closures to the new settlements.

government wanted to only Minimum

The government, in turn, wanted to hold on to the Minimum, by law: Einzonungen the Canton should collect 20 per cent of the value, and Aufzonungen – what much more often happens – also no more than 20 percent, with a maximum of 15 percent of the municipalities should go.

The Canton of Council's Commission for planning and building (KPB) bent over the matter, the opinions go far apart. Now – certainly also under the pressure of the einzonung stops – but it was a compromise, supported by all parties except for the GLP.

these are the key points of the proposal:

In Einzonungen (cantonal value compensation) is the value-added tax of 20 percent. Under a value of 30'000 Swiss francs no tax is levied. The income goes into a cantonal compensation Fund to compensate the municipalities for Auszonungen and measures of the space planning of Canton, regions and municipalities supported.

In the case of On - and Zoning (local value-added compensation) to enjoy the communities great freedom: you can request a levy of up to 40 percent on the order of 100'000 Swiss francs reduced value. This set of 0 to 40 percent allow the municipalities, in their very different needs individually perceive, the Commission writes in its communication.

The municipalities regulate the balance in its building and zoning regulations. The income is to remain, contrary to the submission of the government of the municipalities. "In the sense of a simplification of the survey" is to define the municipalities in the areas of 1200 to 2000 square meters. So will ensure that the "approximately 75 percent of small claims cases" need not be included in the rule in the first place.

The compensation by means of urban development contracts instead of the charge remains acceptable. The city of Zurich had agreed with the owners at the port Close and the Stadelhofen a levy. The compensation may vary in these cases because of the added value tax due. According to the Commission is to report to the Canton of about this System report that is used to control the effects.

The GLP will for and Zoning, in any case, charges of a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 50% of 50'000 Swiss francs reduced value. The party is also in favour of agriculture foreign uses in the agricultural zone in the case of Einzonungen and plots of land, the rural land law, the same rules apply as in the rest of the land.


The parties have responded positively to the message of the KPB. "That's how politics goes," write the Green, which had rejected the proposal of the Executive Council. The breakthrough was due to the willingness to talk to all parties Involved.

The SP writes of a "reasonable" and "overdue compromise in the final meters". She is of the opinion that the Initiative, which had also co-launched, unfolded its full effect. (Tages-Anzeiger)
