Building Site Connections - Step by Step

One of the first stages of house construction is taking care of all the formalities. This is a time when patience is required because the procedure of obtaining the necessary documents and permits can be lengthy. This is especially true when it comes to building site connections. Handling all the formalities in this case can be time-consuming, but having an understanding of the process greatly facilitates the efficient completion of tasks.

New-House is a company that has been cooperating with investors since 1991. We have completed around 1,500 single-family homes, and our comprehensive home construction service ensures that our clients receive full support, including expert advice. Having knowledge about the construction process allows clients to have an informed and controlled execution. Some essential elements include water connections, sewage connections, power connections, and gas connections. It's important to know the procedure involved in each case, as it significantly streamlines the work.

Building Site Connections - Process Overview

The documentation required for building a house can be divided into three main elements: building permits, building inspections, and building site connections. Of these three procedures, the documentation related to building site connections is the most time-consuming and demanding. We have divided this process into several stages to make it easier to navigate.

Connection Conditions

The first stage of work (whether it's for power connections, water connections, or others) involves obtaining connection conditions from the authorities. This document describes all the rules on which each building site connection is based. It specifies, for example, the exact location where the connection should be made.

Signing a Connection Agreement

Each building site connection requires an agreement with the utility provider. The authorized person signs the agreement with the appropriate company. For example, in the case of power connections, the agreement is signed with the selected power company for the supply of electricity to residential and construction purposes. Each building site connection requires a separate agreement.

Projekt przyłącza do działki budowlanej

Kolejny etap, jeśli chodzi o dowolne przyłącze budowlane, to proces projektowania. Jest on zwykle realizowany na etapie przygotowywania planu zagospodarowania terenu przez architekta. Projekt przyłącza do działki budowlanej musi zostać wykonany przez uprawnionego projektanta branżowego. Warto podkreślić, że jeśli chodzi o przyłączanie wody do działki, takie działanie będzie wystarczające. Natomiast jeśli chodzi o przyłącze energetyczne, przyłącze kanalizacyjne oraz przyłącze gazowe, wymagane jest uzyskanie dodatkowego pozwolenia na budowę instalacji na terenie działki. Istotne jest także to, że sprawy dokumentacyjne, jeśli chodzi o przyłącza do działki, muszą być również uzgadniane w ZUD’zie. Zespół Uzgodnień Dokumentacji Projektowej, czyli ZUD, opiniuje dany projekt, jeżeli planowany element infrastruktury będzie częściowo przebiegał poza terenem działki inwestora. Takie uzgodnienia zwykle przeprowadza geodeta oraz projektanci branżowi, po wyznaczeniu przez architekta miejsca przyłączy.

Design of utility connections to the building plot

The next stage, when it comes to any utility connection, is the design process. It is typically carried out during the preparation of the site development plan by an architect. The design of utility connections to the building plot must be done by an authorized specialist designer. It is worth noting that when it comes to water supply connections to the plot, this action is sufficient. However, for electricity, sewerage, and gas connections, an additional permit is required to install the infrastructure on the plot. It is also important to note that the documentation regarding the utility connections to the plot must be coordinated with the Project Documentation Coordination Team (ZUD). The ZUD reviews the project if the planned infrastructure element partially extends beyond the investor's plot. Such coordination is usually carried out by a surveyor and specialist designers after the architect has determined the location of the connections.

Execution

The final stage is the actual execution. Interestingly, there is a significant time disparity here. The process of obtaining all the necessary documents and permits to carry out the utility connections to the plot takes approximately 5-7 months. However, the actual execution, including the connection of the utilities, takes only a few days, usually no more than three.

Of course, the execution process may vary depending on the type of utility connection being installed.

Water Supply Connection to the Plot

When it comes to water supply connections to the plot, the procedure itself is not particularly complicated. The approved design that includes the water connection should be consulted with the water and sewage company, and its validity will last for 3 years. Then, the company brings water to the plot, usually by using circular wells that extract water from shallow layers. The entire process aims to connect the water supply to the point of supplying the building with water, which is typically done during the construction phase of the house (usually near the boiler room). Such water supply connections are usually completed within two or three days.

Electricity Connection to the Building Plot

The electrical connection is the simplest of all connections. Connecting electricity to the building plot is carried out by an authorized electrician and usually takes no longer than one day. The process involves the electrician running the electrical connection from the distribution box owned by the electricity company to the distribution panel in the house. The cost of the utility connection in this case depends on the distance between the house and the distribution box.

 

Projecting Building Site Connections

The next stage, regardless of the type of building site connection, is the design process. This is usually done during the site development planning phase by an architect. The project for the building site connection must be prepared by an authorized specialist designer. It's worth noting that for water connections to the site, such a design is sufficient. However, for power connections, sewage connections, and gas connections, an additional installation permit is required. It's also important to coordinate the documentation regarding the building site connections with the Documentation Project Agreement Team (ZUD). The ZUD reviews the project if the planned infrastructure element will partially extend beyond the investor's plot. These agreements are usually made by surveyors and specialist designers after the architect has designated the connection locations.

Execution

The final stage is the execution itself. Interestingly, there is a significant time disproportion here. The process of obtaining all the necessary documents and permits for the building site connections takes about 5-7 months. However, the actual execution and connection of the utilities only take a few days, usually no more than three.

Of course, the execution process may vary slightly depending on the type of building site connection being carried out.

Water Connection to the Building Site

The procedure for connecting water to the building site is not particularly complicated. A prepared project that includes the water connection should be consulted with the water and sewage company, and its validity lasts for 3 years after approval. Then, the company brings water to the site, usually by using circular wells that draw water from shallow layers. The entire process ensures that the water connection is brought to the location where the building is supplied with water, which was set during the raw state of the house construction (usually near the boiler room). Such a water connection is typically completed in two or three days.

Power Connection to the Building Site

The electrical connection is the simplest of all connections. Connecting power to the building site is carried out by an authorized electrician and usually takes no longer than one day. The process involves running the electrical connection from the utility company's distribution box to the distribution box in the house. The cost of the building site connection in this case depends on the distance between the house and the distribution box.

Sewage Connection

The sewage connection to the building site is carried out by the municipal water and sewage company. The execution process involves installing a distribution sewage well, to which the sewage is directed from the house. The sewage outlet from the house is designed based on the house construction plan. It is routed outside the building's footprint during the construction phase.

Gas Connection

The gas connection is carried out by a specialized company with the necessary qualifications. It is important to have the gas connection done during the developer's construction phase, with the appropriate plastering completed in the house. This is important because the installation should be visible and not hidden behind any structures.

How to Connect a House to the Gas Network?

A gas connection is part of the basic installations carried out in a new single-family house. It enables cooking, house heating, and even water heating. For many individuals, a gas connection is an essential element of home equipment. It is important to familiarize oneself with the basics of construction law to know precisely how to connect a house to the gas network.

A gas installation is nothing more than a system of pipes coming from the supplying gas pipeline. The gas connection itself refers to the section of the gas pipeline leading to the shut-off valve, or in other words, the main gas valve. This simplified explanation can be found in construction law documents. However, it is important to focus on practical matters: what requirements must be met, what formalities need to be taken care of, and who to hire for the execution. These are the questions that investors should have answers to.

Gas Connection for a Single-Family House - Required Conditions

To be able to carry out a gas connection for a single-family house, specific conditions specified by the local gas utility company must be met. This is the first stage of implementation that determines all subsequent actions. If you are applying for a gas connection for your house, it will be necessary to define the planned installation group as group B. This is the most commonly chosen solution by individual customers, as it defines entities that consume no more than 10 cubic meters of high-methane or propane-butane natural gas or no more than 25 cubic meters of nitrogen-enriched natural gas.

Furthermore, filling out the application will require providing additional information and submitting the necessary documents. An ownership certificate, a development plan or a map for informational or advisory purposes will be required. Additionally, the estimated annual gas demand, the planned start of using the connection, and the expected connection capacity must be specified in the application. The application can be submitted in person or sent by mail to the address of the local branch of the Gas Utility Company or any gas fuel supplier of your choice.

After submitting the appropriate documents, the utility company must analyze them in terms of technical and economic connection conditions. If it is possible to connect the house to the gas network, you will receive feedback within 21 days (applies to group B). The next step to connect the house to the gas network is to sign the appropriate agreement.

Gas Connection Agreement for a House

Based on the specified connection conditions, an agreement is signed with the supplier. Polska Spółka Gazownictwa is responsible for preparing this document. Such an agreement is the basis for carrying out the gas installation on the investor's property. What does the gas connection agreement for a single-family house include?

  • Date of signing the agreement,

  • Deadline for completing the connection,

  • Location of the installation,

  • Connection capacity,

  • Specified scope of necessary works,

  • Technical requirements of the area,

  • Conditions for providing access to the area during network construction,

  • Amount of the connection fee,

  • Rights and obligations of both parties.

Signing the agreement also involves covering the relevant connection fee. This is a lump sum price that is calculated individually based on factors such as the length of the connection and the connection capacity, among others.

The signed agreement with the utility company, as well as the previously obtained connection conditions, form the basis for commencing subsequent works.

Gas Installation - Who to Entrust with the Design and Execution?

To have a gas connection installed in a single-family house, a professional design is necessary. It is a requirement for the local authority to approve the commencement of the project. The gas installation should be designed by a qualified professional. Their responsibilities include familiarizing themselves with all technical conditions and conducting specific calculations to determine the installation layout. Accuracy and attention to detail during such work are crucial because a poorly executed gas connection poses a real danger.

The person responsible for the design must create a detailed plan to facilitate the subsequent implementation. When searching for someone to design the installation, consider choosing a company that offers comprehensive services, including execution. This way, you can ensure that the gas connection to the house will be carried out quickly and efficiently. However, before starting the implementation, it is advisable to check the credentials of the contractors. A gas connection can be executed by a person who holds valid construction qualifications for the operation of gas devices, installations, and networks.

How Does the Connection to the Gas Network Proceed?

After obtaining the gas installation design, it is necessary to submit an application for a construction permit or a notification of construction to the local authority. Once you receive a positive response, you can proceed with the actual implementation.

Connecting a house to the gas network is usually done using flexible polyethylene pipes with a diameter of DN32. They are installed at a depth of one meter, and additional protective pipes are used at pipe intersections. The gas line must be connected to the gas meter box. This is where important elements of the installation, such as the meter, pressure reducer, and main valve, are located. Inside the house, the gas installation is typically made of steel or copper pipes. Installers must ensure that gas pipes are properly separated from other installations (e.g., water and electrical).

Where to Source Electricity During Construction?

Construction of a house cannot proceed without access to electricity. It is necessary to obtain a stable source of electrical energy in order to carry out the full construction process, as most of the work cannot be completed without it. In this article, we will explain how to establish a temporary electricity connection for construction purposes in a reliable and proper manner.

To commence construction, a temporary water connection and a construction permit are required. It is advisable to arrange for the electrical connection during the application for the construction permit. Usually, this involves signing a contract for the provision of permanent electricity and a separate contract for supplying electricity for construction purposes. The construction tariff is significantly more expensive than the permanent electricity tariff, which is why many people seek alternative solutions. However, we advise against using them.

Is Borrowing Electricity from a Neighbor During Construction a Good Idea?

We often hear about investors who decide to borrow electricity from a neighbor during construction. We strongly discourage such a decision. While it may seem attractive due to lower electricity costs, both parties involved ultimately face the same issues. Why? First and foremost, it is simply illegal, and the consequences will affect not only the investor but also the person providing the electricity connection for construction purposes. Another concern is that borrowing electricity from a neighbor during construction often leads to unclear agreements and, as a result, disputes and strained neighborly relations. It is not worth considering such a solution.

Can Construction Electricity from a Generator Succeed?

Some individuals prefer not to establish a temporary electricity connection during construction and seek alternative solutions to reduce costs. One such option may appear to be using a construction generator for electricity. However, it is important to note that a power generator cannot guarantee the same level of electricity supply as a proper electrical connection. Unfortunately, this method is insufficient, and we generally discourage its use. Construction electricity should be stable and enable fast and efficient work. A generator can be useful for smaller construction tasks, though.

How to Choose a Temporary Electrical Connection for Construction?

Now that we know that neither a generator nor borrowing electricity from a neighbor is a suitable solution, what option should we choose? It is advisable to opt for a tried and tested solution by establishing a temporary electrical connection for construction purposes. As mentioned before, construction electricity and permanent electricity require separate agreements due to different power capacities and pricing. When requesting electricity for construction purposes in a single-family house, it is recommended to apply for a connection with a power capacity of 12 kW. Although the entire construction process is usually carried out at a lower power capacity, 12 kW is necessary for larger tasks, such as applying plaster using a plastering machine.

 

 

How to Choose a Temporary Electrical Connection for Construction?

The physical connection of the temporary electrical supply for construction can only be made after obtaining permission from the local authority. The requirements for the connection may vary on each plot of land. In some cases, the electrical connection can be made near the site, while in other cases, it may need to be extended for tens or even hundreds of meters.

How to Choose a Temporary Electrical Connection for Construction?

Construction electricity can be obtained from any electricity provider, whether local or national. It is important to ensure that the electricity supply has the appropriate power capacity. We recommend a construction electricity supply with a capacity of 12 kW. Another important aspect is the choice of tariff from the provider. There are three types of tariffs available, and the price depends on the time of day when construction work is being carried out.

Tariff C11 - This is the most popular tariff, allowing work to be carried out during both day and night. The kilowatt-hour rate remains constant throughout the day, providing flexibility in scheduling construction activities. There is no need to plan specific tasks for certain hours to minimize electricity consumption.

Tariff C12a - This construction electricity tariff has two rates, which depend on peak and off-peak hours. This option is beneficial if you can predict the type of work to be performed during specific hours.

Tariff C12b - This is another two-zone tariff, with a lower price during off-peak hours, typically at night. However, to make this option cost-effective, a minimum of 30% of the work should be carried out during the cheaper period.

The temporary electrical connection for construction will naturally incur higher costs compared to the permanent electricity supply. Construction electricity can be up to 100% more expensive, but it is worth analyzing offers from various providers.

Switching from Construction Electricity to Permanent Electricity

The construction electricity should be switched to a permanent commercial electricity supply soon after completing the construction work. This requires providing the chosen electricity provider with relevant documents confirming the completion of the construction. These documents include the occupancy permit and a notification of completed construction issued by the District Office. Once the documents are submitted, the permanent electricity supply can be activated.

Comprehensive House Construction with New-House

The formalities of house construction can overwhelm any investor. They are numerous and often quite complex. It is beneficial to have the support of an experienced construction company that not only carries out the construction work but also offers advisory and consultancy services.

Building a Deep Well on Your Plot - What You Need to Know?

Having your own water source on your plot is an interesting alternative to connecting to the municipal water supply. Water from a private source can be obtained in various ways, but one of the most common solutions is drilling a well. In this article, we present all the important information about the functioning, installation, and legal regulations regarding deep wells.

How Does a Deep Well Work?

A drilled well, often referred to as a deep well, is simply a hole drilled into the ground that reaches the aquifer level. This type of water extraction is used when the aquifer is deep. Typically, the drilled holes are at least ten meters deep, but no more than twenty meters. A drilled well is characterized by high durability and resistance to potential contaminants. Moreover, this solution allows for a large water supply.

Regulations for Drilled Wells

The construction of a drilled well on a plot must comply with specific legal regulations. The regulations primarily concern the location and construction conditions.

First and foremost, it is important to remember that the construction of a drilled well on a plot must be reported to the local authorities. The procedures may vary depending on whether the well was previously included in the land development plan. If the well was already included in the plan, construction work can proceed. However, if the construction of a drilled well was not specified in the land development plan, it is sufficient to submit a notification to the District Office, specifying the type and exact location of the well. The drilled well should be located at a proper distance from other structures. It should be at least five meters from the plot boundary, fifteen meters from a septic tank (or similar container), thirty meters from a drainage pipe, and at least seven and a half meters from a roadside ditch.

Typically, obtaining water rights does not require a water permit, so the process of legalizing the well construction proceeds smoothly, and approval is usually granted within 30 days. A water permit for drilled well construction is required only when the planned well exceeds a depth of 30 meters and the intended water intake is more than 0.5 cubic meters per hour. These regulations are defined by water law and mining and geological law.

Construction of a Drilled Well on a Plot

Before starting the construction of a drilled well, it is necessary to conduct a soil and water analysis on the plot. To determine the depth of the water-bearing layer and assess the water quality, the most reliable method is to commission hydrogeological tests from a specialist. They will indicate the best location for construction to achieve optimal results. The specialist will also determine if the extracted water is suitable for drinking or if it can only be used for non-potable purposes, such as irrigation.

How does a deep well work? It involves creating a suitable opening in the ground using drilling equipment to allow for the free extraction of water. Manual drilling is also possible but is typically reserved for cases where the soil quality is good and there are no major obstacles. Manual labor is cheaper but more labor-intensive.

The usual drilling depth ranges from 15 to 20 meters. However, it's important to note that the water level often stabilizes at a shallower depth than the drilling depth. Drilled wells utilize special pumps that are responsible for lifting the water to the surface. The selection of an appropriate pump depends on the diameter of the well and the desired performance.

A drilled well can be constructed with casing pipes or using the flush method. In the first case, a casing pipe is inserted into the well bore, and a perforated filter pipe is later inserted into the casing. Then, a pump is placed inside the well and connected to the pipeline. In the flush method, a flushing solution stabilizes the walls of the borehole. This is a cheaper solution but may result in less durability and resilience of the well.

The construction of a drilled well on a plot should use high-quality materials and be carried out by experienced professionals. The cost of building a drilled well (including materials and labor) can range from 4,000 to 6,000 PLN. Therefore, it is important to invest in a reliable, high-quality product. A well-constructed drilled well should provide satisfactory and consistent results for at least 30 years. Well-built drilled wells can even operate flawlessly for 50 years! It is a significant investment because a damaged well would need to be replaced.

Cost of a Drilled Well on a Building Plot

A well often proves to be the best solution for a plot. It provides a reliable water source when the plot is far from a local water supply and connecting to the water main is not feasible. Many people also choose to install a drilled well even when they have access to a municipal water supply. Such a well ensures a constant supply of large quantities of water, allowing, for example, the fulfillment of the water demands of a large garden.

We are a construction company that has been comprehensively building single-family homes since 1991. We have collaborated with numerous investors and have dealt with building plots with varying conditions and dimensions. Sometimes, installing a drilled well was the only sensible solution to provide household members with a reliable water supply. Investors are always interested in the details of this implementation, such as how the installation is carried out, at what depth it is placed, and, very importantly, the cost of a drilled well on a building plot. In this article, we will present all the essential information regarding this implementation.

What characterizes a deep well?

A deep well, also known as a drilled or tube well, is characterized by its installation method. To install a deep well, a borehole is drilled to a depth of around 10 meters, often deeper. The objective is to reach deep groundwater that is suitable for consumption without the need for special treatment. The installation of a deep well depends on geological surveys. These surveys determine the depth at which various types of water (shallow, groundwater, and deep groundwater) are located and provide information about the soil quality on the plot. This is crucial because the cost of excavating a deep well depends on the depth of the deep water.

How is the installation of a deep well carried out?

Due to the need for deep excavations, typically exceeding ten meters, specialized equipment such as a drilling rig is used for the installation of a deep well. During the installation, an outer casing pipe and a filtration pipe are used. The outer casing pipe is used to reach the water-bearing layer of the soil, while the filtration pipe allows water to penetrate that layer. If the installation of the deep well is done at a depth exceeding eight meters, a pumping system is also used to facilitate water suction. This expanded installation process significantly affects the cost of excavating a deep well. After installing the pipes, gravel backfill is applied to facilitate water flow, ensuring efficiency. The upper part of the outer casing pipe is fitted with a supporting clamp with water connections and a shut-off valve.

What is the cost of a deep well on a building plot?

As a construction company with extensive experience in the market, New-House understands that financial perspective is a crucial aspect of home construction and related matters. Therefore, it's not surprising that investors often inquire about the cost of a deep well on their plots. Unfortunately, this is not a straightforward matter. The cost of a deep well depends on factors such as:

  • Depth of the borehole
  • Need for a pumping system
  • Type of pipes
  • Material quality
  • Chosen construction company
  • Selected hydrophore tank

To help estimate the cost of a deep well, here are some indicative prices currently prevailing in the market. The drilling cost alone ranges from 150 to 300 Polish zlotys per meter of depth. Taking an average and assuming an 11-meter borehole, the drilling cost for a deep well would amount to 2,200 Polish zlotys.

The cost of a deep well pump can range from 400 to several thousand zlotys, depending on the chosen company and individual household needs. Typically, investors opt for a pump with a medium capacity, pumping between 90 and 190 liters per minute. Let's consider the example of a pump with an average capacity, priced at 700 Polish zlotys.

Next, the purchase of a hydrophore tank is necessary. The cost of the tank depends on the chosen capacity and can range from a few hundred to two thousand zlotys. For estimation purposes, let's assume an average hydrophore tank with a capacity of 100 liters, which can be purchased for around 600 Polish zlotys.

Summing up our calculations (2,200 PLN drilling, 700 PLN deep well pump, 600 PLN hydrophore tank), the cost of a deep well on a plot would amount to 3,500 Polish zlotys. This is a realistic price for the installation of a deep well, but please note that the actual cost will depend on the individual conditions prevailing on your plot. The price can vary both higher and lower. If you want to know the exact cost of drilling a deep well, we encourage you to contact us. Our specialists will assess the conditions on your building plot and take into account your expectations and financial possibilities, and then provide a comprehensive cost estimate for the entire installation with New-House.

The Team for Coordination of Project Documentation (Zespół Uzgadniania Dokumentacji Projektowej or ZUD)

The Teams for Coordination of Project Documentation (ZUD), which were replaced by Coordination Meetings (Narady Koordynacyjne) organized by county authorities under the amendment to the Geodetic and Cartographic Law on July 12, 2014, were responsible for coordinating projects submitted by both private investors and utility providers operating in a given area. Let's take a closer look at what used to be the responsibilities of this entity operating within the county office.

The task of ZUD was to examine whether the planned utility connections, such as infrastructure networks, would not conflict with existing pipelines, buildings, and geodetic marks. These units were also responsible for issuing professional opinions when part of the planned infrastructure extended beyond the investor's plot boundaries for a single-family house construction. The geodetic expert representing the Team for Coordination of Project Documentation collaborated with the designer of the specific utility network, be it electricity, water, or sewage. The final approval was granted by the county authority, municipality, or road administrator, depending on the specific situation.

What were the grounds for issuing ZUD opinions?

The opinions and coordination decisions issued by the Teams for Coordination of Project Documentation were based on the following legal acts applicable in our country:

  • Geodetic and Cartographic Law, Act of May 17, 1989
  • Building Law, Act of July 7, 1994
  • Regulations of the Minister of Regional Development and Construction of April 2, 2001, regarding the geodetic record of infrastructure networks and teams for coordination of project documentation

In what situations should one contact the Team for Coordination of Project Documentation?

Consultation with the Team for Coordination of Project Documentation was necessary in situations described in the Local Spatial Development Plan or in the decision on building conditions. Obtaining opinions and approvals from ZUD was particularly required when completing a construction project involved the installation of infrastructure elements on land outside the investor's plot, while the responsibility for designing and constructing those elements rested with the investor.

What needed to be coordinated with ZUD?

The following had to be reported to ZUD:

  • Above-ground and underground water supply pipes and equipment
  • Sewage equipment
  • Telecommunication lines
  • Power supply lines

It is worth noting that not every element of the installation required coordination with ZUD. Such coordination was not necessary in the case of connections needed for:

  • Intercom systems
  • Lighting points
  • Illumination
  • Ventilation chimneys
  • Drainage pipes with a diameter not exceeding 60 cm

What documents did the investor need to submit to the local ZUD for project coordination?

The following correctly completed documents were required to submit a project for coordination with the Team for Coordination of Project Documentation:

  • A properly filled-out application addressed to the county authority
  • A list of types of networks and equipment included in the project
  • A map showing the proposed route in three copies
  • Authorization from the investor (in the case where the project was submitted by a designer or a geodetic surveying unit on behalf of the investor)
  • Decision on building and development conditions
  • Decision on the location of public investments or an excerpt from the Local Spatial Development Plan
  • Current technical conditions for connecting the facility to the infrastructure networks or technical conditions for the reconstruction of networks in case of changes in location or data contained in the geodetic records obtained from the network operators
  • An approximate sketch of the location of the facility in relation to neighboring plots and main roads

ZUD application – how should it be correctly filled out?

The application for coordination of the project with ZUD should include:

  • The purpose of the investor's request, for example, coordination of the location of the proposed sewage or power network
  • Investor's details
  • Municipality, street, and plot number where the planned investment is located
  • Required attachments

What was the cost of ZUD coordination?

The fees for ZUD coordination were individually determined based on the appendix to the Geodetic and Cartographic Law and the Law on Administrative Execution.

In practice, the ZUD price list included:

  • Fees for coordinating the location of proposed infrastructure networks that were not utility connections:
    • PLN 150 for one type of network that was not a utility connection
    • PLN 105 (70% of PLN 150) for each subsequent type of network that was not a utility connection
  • Fees for coordinating the location of proposed infrastructure networks that were utility connections:
    • PLN 105 (70% of PLN 150) for one type of utility connection
    • PLN 73.50 (70% of 70% of PLN 150) for each subsequent type of utility connection
  • Additionally, if the application was submitted by a design office on behalf of the investor, they had to pay a fee of PLN 17.

For how long was the ZUD coordination valid?

The opinion issued by the Team for Coordination of Project Documentation was valid for three years. The exception to this rule occurred when a building permit was granted during the validity period of the opinion. In that case, the opinion was valid for the duration of the construction project.

How do the Coordination Meetings, which replaced the Teams for Coordination of Project Documentation, work?

The Coordination Meetings, which replaced the Teams for Coordination of Project Documentation under the currently applicable regulations, have a very similar scope of duties to their predecessors and, like them, are organized by county authorities. So what is the difference in their operation? Well, Coordination Meetings use simplified procedures for coordinating projects, which allows for significant acceleration of the process and, consequently, the implementation of the proposed investments. This is good news for investors who are usually time-sensitive.

The task of Coordination Meetings is to properly locate proposed infrastructure networks, with particular emphasis on urban areas, rural areas, and road corridors. However, the meetings do not deal with coordinating the location of specific connections or networks within private building plots.

Coordination Meetings are convened upon receipt of applications from investors or designers. In the case of large county authorities, which handle a significant number of applications, the meetings are organized periodically, such as once or twice a month. It all depends on the current needs. As for the formalities and fees required during the submission of projects for coordination with Coordination Meetings, they are very similar to those that applied during the operation of the Teams for Coordination of Project Documentation. It is worth noting that up-to-date and detailed information regarding the requirements in this regard can be found on the websites of county authorities.
