Booking an appointment with the CFUE for assistance in urban planning and environmental matters

Last update

The Facilitation Unit for Urban Planning and Environment (cellule de facilitation urbanisme et environnement - CFUE) at the Ministry of Housing and Spatial Planning offers technical assistance and advice within the framework of planning and authorisation processes for urban development projects.


  • answers questions from individuals and professionals about urban planning and environmental matters;
  • provides an overview of the applicable laws and regulations;
  • determines which steps are required to make a project a reality.

Who is concerned?

Citizens, companies or communes wishing to launch a planning, urbanisation or development project can contact the CFUE for assistance in urban planning and environmental matters.


Preliminary steps

Ideally, the CFUE should be contacted at the beginning of the planning process, before the official procedures are initiated.

How to proceed

Submitting the application

The appointment is made via (see the section 'Online services and forms'). The applicant is invited to:

  • provide explanations about their project; and
  • attach explanatory documents if necessary.

Processing the application

Following the transmission of the request for an appointment, the CFUE analyses the situation as well as the legal and regulatory framework according to the context of the project.

Next, the CFUE contacts the applicant to arrange an interview (in person or by video conference) in order to review the rules that apply to the plot of land and the project, and to discuss the specific requirements with the applicant.

Good to know

The CFUE can also act as a mediator in the event of prolonged silence or failure to meet a deadline for responding to a request for authorisation.
