Land consolidation procedures are complex communication processes involving a large number of people with different goals, interests and expectations. For this reason, an evaluation of communication in land readjustment procedures has now been carried out for the first time, using examples in Bavaria, in order to analyze the communication task and identify possibilities for optimization. This is done in an explorative research structure in the form of a mixed-methods study consisting of interviews of project managers and a participant survey by means of a questionnaire. Eleven land consolidation procedures with over 2200 participants were selected for the study; a total of 28 interviews and the evaluation results of 543 questionnaires could be included. With a response rate of over 27 %, the survey was very well received and turned out significantly better than can be expected from postal surveys. The survey showed that the majority of participants rated the communication in the procedures very positively. In addition, potential for optimization was identified, which relates in particular to the provision of information, the awareness of those responsible for the effects of communication and thus the tasks of communication. The article presents and discusses selected results of the study.
