Land Use

Chaffe McCall attorneys are keenly aware of local requirements and state-enabling legislation that clients must adhere to in developing their projects.  Our attorneys have extensive experience in all types of land use matters.  We can assist clients with an entire range of planning and compliance matters, including:

We have a breadth of experience in the legislative, administrative and regulatory aspects of complex zoning and other land use issues.  We represent real estate investors, developers, and landowners. We develop and implement legal strategies to expedite a project from the conceptual stage all the way through application and ultimate approval while minimizing the risk of litigation and other delays. Our vast knowledge of local, regional, and state agencies help us minimize roadblocks and find solutions to problems that can arise in the development process.

The firm’s land use attorneys have substantial experience representing clients before city councils, planning commissions, zoning boards, and other boards and commissions. Our clients benefit from our attorneys’ local knowledge, experience, and working relationships that are essential to a successful zoning and land use process.
