The approval allows for earthworks and shell construction, as well as the construction of traffic areas on the massive 300-hectare site.

If you’ve been following along with the construction in Germany, you know that Tesla has preemptively started much of this work in anticipation of the necessary approvals.

Should Tesla not receive the approval for its building application, it would have to remove the foundations and other works at the site on its own expense.

Tesla recently submitted changes to their building plans, which included removing on-site battery production and the inclusion of race track.

The automaker hopes to have construction complete in 2021, with the first Model Y‘s destined for the European market rolling off the production line.

Elon Musk recently revealed the first render of the completed site, showing off an impressive, modern (and huge) Gigafactory.
