Typical regional building in the VG Konz

The municipal council decided for the first time in 2009 to set up a funding program in this area in order to contribute to the high-quality further development of building culture in our region. The aspect of the inner development of our places will play an increasingly important role in the future. The town centers are currently characterized by a noticeable aging of the population, so that a stronger fluctuation of residents is to be expected here. Demographic change also poses new challenges for the communities here.

The association of municipalities would therefore like to take the opportunity with the program to point out the traditional building culture in our region and to sensitize them to it.

Experience shows that advice can often no longer be successful once concrete planning ideas have solidified in the minds of the owners. For this reason, the citizens should be informed about the program with this brochure at the time of purchasing the property in the locality and they should be given an understanding of the regionally typical construction methods through advice.

  • Funding Opportunities

    Please contact the building administration of VG Konz first if you are thinking of carrying out a conversion, renovation or closing a gap in the village.

    We provide you with funding so that you can receive an initial consultation from a suitable architectural office or planning office. This advice is free of charge for you if the upper limit of the advice service of €600 gross (including VAT) per property is not exceeded.

    Eligible are:

    • old buildings
    • Advice on the regionally typical design of old buildings and their building surroundings
    • Vacant or underused buildings
    • Advice on (re)use concepts in the town centre
    • New buildings in the town center
    • Advice on the typical regional design to close vacant lots

    The advice relates only to the exterior design of the building, not to the room layout. It is primarily about designing and improving the visual relationship between the object and its surroundings, the town centre.
