Business in Ebersberg: Too big for the little ones – Ebersberg

Anyone who lives in the district town is never far from a local recreation area, for example in the rural south of Ebersberg. But in the future it could get tight there on the narrow streets and in the small villages, at least if a project were implemented that is planned on the site of a gravel pit near Traxl. A crushing and grinding plant is to be built there, a very powerful one at that: According to the company, up to 1000 tons of rock per day should be processed there – which would have to be driven to and from the surrounding gravel pits in the Rosenheim district. A prospect that neither the residents nor the politicians particularly like: The technical committee of the city council has now unanimously decided that the city will do everything possible to prevent the project in Traxl.

The city demands a construction control procedure

At the moment there is already gravel mining between the villages of Rinding and Traxl, three pits are currently in operation there. However, these are rather smaller of their kind and their lifespan is limited. Once the gravel has been mined, the pits are renatured. This would not apply to the planned system, it would run as long as it is profitable for the operator. On the part of the city, the project is therefore not viewed as a facility for gravel extraction – these are considered privileged and may also be built outside, without the municipalities being able to prevent it. Instead, the city building authority assumes that it is a commercial enterprise. However, this would not be permitted on the property at the moment, as the zoning plan does not provide for such use and therefore no corresponding development plan exists.

According to building authority manager Christian Stöhr in the committee, a construction control procedure is therefore necessary. If the gravel crushing plant is to be built at Traxl, a special area would have to be identified. Mayor Ulrich Proske (non-party) made it clear that the city is very critical of the project. Heavy traffic on the roads will certainly increase significantly, which will lead to higher maintenance costs but also to dangers for other road users, especially cyclists and pedestrians. Another critical point is the city’s admission that “currently no building rubble processing is planned”. At the moment, that doesn’t mean that the recycling plant would also come to Traxl, that would mean even more trucks on the roads. Basically everything that should be created in Traxl is right and necessary – but not there: “It’s the wrong place for such a project.”

The streets in the south of the district town, here Traxl with the Church of St. Anna, are mostly narrow. Many people are concerned that a gravel truck will soon be thundering through here every five minutes.

Martin Schechner (CSU) also expressed himself very critically, he put the motion to the rules of procedure that the committee should vote on whether to reject the project in principle. If it is implemented, this means that with 1000 tons of processed material per day on the streets, some of which are only four meters wide, a heavy gravel truck is on its way every five to six minutes: “That will be an extreme burden for the residents.” Just imagine someone is planning an industrial park on the outskirts of Ebersberg, which would have to drive 100 trucks across Marienplatz every day to operate it: “I don’t think he’ll get a majority here.”

There are also concerns in the district office

There was no such thing in the committee for the Traxl project. Christoph Münch (SPD) called the prospect “terrifying”, the residents would be enormously burdened. “It’s the wrong place, we don’t want the business to start there. And in contrast to the current use, it is not gravel mining – which is only possible in exceptional cases in the south of Ebersberg – but processing, so clearly a commercial enterprise Gerd Otter (Pro Ebersberg) also referred: “We have always said that the sheep pasture is the right place for this, the gravel pits in the south are only for local supplies.” The land-use planning proposed by the administration could prevent a lot. “We should prevent it completely “, Jürgen Friedrichs (Greens) agreed with Schechner’s application, the planned system” does not fit the area at all “.

Without dissenting votes, the committee passed a statement rejecting the grinding plant in Traxl. “We can’t make any promises,” said the mayor in the direction of the Traxler group in the audience, “but we are trying everything within the scope of the legal possibilities to prevent it.” The city may get support from the district office. The local lower nature conservation authority sees a possible conflict with a biotope area. The outcome of an immission control approval procedure is also still open.
