The districts have been responsible for the Berlin District Development Plan (Bereichsentwicklungsplan, BEP) since the early 1990s. The task of the central administration is limited to regulating fundamental matters and introducing city-wide goals into the planning process. In the BEP, the area requirements for social infrastructure facilities, green and recreational areas, commercial operations, public space and transport infrastructure, and housing are determined and spatially allocated. The BEP is geared toward a medium to long-term planning horizon. The results of the BEP are to be decided by the district. These correspond to other urban planning; they are binding within the administration and must be taken into account in the binding land-use planning when weighing up. The BEP plan is to be drawn up based on a uniform legend on a scale of 1:10,000. Non-consensual deviations from agreed city-wide plans are shown as areas of dissent. Alternatives can be presented for different solutions. Public authorities affected by the planning must be involved. The neighbouring districts are to be coordinated. The public must be informed about the content of the area development plan. Before the district office's decision, the BEP must be forwarded to the central administration responsible for the initial planning. District resolutions on the BEP are published in the Official Journal. The BEP is published as a final report and distributed to the administrations and public bodies involved.
