a) The plot or field with its dimensions and area, contour of the building to be built geometrically defined, unambiguously defined with rectangular coordinates in the state coordinate system.
b) The calculations of the allowed and realized coverage, the maximum allowed height, the realized volume of the building, the volume factor of exploitation, the lateral and rear distances and the calculation of the needs in parking spaces.
c) The contours of the levels of the building, basement and above ground, their dimensions, their position in relation to the building lines and the lateral boundaries of the plot and any other basic element necessary to calculate the coverage, volume and height of the building.
