GSK Update: Requirements of the European Services Directive for urban land-use plans

The European Services Directive applies to land-use plans that restrict retail trade. This was decided by the European Court of Justice in its ruling of 30 January 2018 in the Visser/Appingedam case.

More than 70 participants from the German federal, state and municipal administrations, the real estate industry, trade, politics, associations and the legal profession discussed the consequences for the German practice of retail trade regulation at the joint symposium of the German Association for Housing, Urban Planning and Spatial Planning and GSK STOCKMANN on 22 November 2018.
