We Handle the Full Range of Land Use and Zoning Issues in Connecticut
Land Use and Development
Our Connecticut real estate lawyers have experience representing clients dealing with a wide range of land use applications.
Whether you are a large commercial developer working on a large-scale development project or an individual homeowner looking to create an addition to your personal property, our Connecticut land use and zoning attorneys are available to offer support. We will guide you through the permitting/approval process in an efficient manner and help you deal with any legal obstacles that may arise.
Zoning and Administrative Appeals
Zoning applications are handled at the local level. As an example, the West Hartford Planning and Zoning Division reviews all planned development requiring site plan approval, special use permits, zoning permits, lot line revisions, lot splits, subdivisions, special development district approvals and building permits requiring building expansions or change in use.
The Town Plan & Zoning Commission is responsible for guiding development through application of the zoning and subdivision regulations through its review and subsequent approval or denial of proposed changes to the zoning ordinances, changes to the zoning map, special use permits, subdivisions and certain development under the zoning code.
In many cases, permits and/or approvals are improperly or unfairly denied for one reason or another. The good news is that developers and property owners have the right to bring an administrative appeal after receiving a denial.
If you are considering filing an administrative appeal in Connecticut, you should speak to an experienced zoning attorney right away.
Inland and Wetland Regulations
In the early 1970s, the state of Connecticut passed the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Act (IWWA). This law gives regulators considerable jurisdiction over inland wetland areas.
As explained by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, activities in wetlands or watercourses are strictly regulated. Our Connecticut land use and zoning attorneys have the skills and experience to handle complex matters involving state and federal inland/wetland regulations.
