## Summary

It is shown that a topological affine Hjelmslev plane is connected or the quasi-component of each point is contained in its neighbour class. If one neighbour class of a point is connected, then they all are, and each is equal to the quasi-component and the component of the point. For topological projective Hjelmslev planes a weaker form of connectedness (∼-connectedness) is defined and it is proved that the plane is ∼-connected or each neighbour class is equal to it ∼-quasi-component. In addition it is shown that the ∼-connectedness of the plane is equivalent to the ∼-connectedness of a line, or other special subsets of the plane, or the connectedness of a line in the associated ordinary plane. Finally it is shown, if the plane is uniform, that ∼-connectedness and connectedness are equivalent and so the plane is either connected, totally disconnected or each neighbour class is equal to the corresponding quasi-component.
