Land Use and Zoning

Zoning and land use laws regulate the use and development of public and private lands in a particular area.

Municipalities use zoning ordinances to control local property development and also enact codes to provide guidance for other legal issues pertaining to land use including easements, setbacks, and building heights.

However, local and state zoning regulations do not always align with private or institutional plans, and dozens of South Florida real estate professionals rely on professional land use and zoning attorneys to represent their unique interests, while still maintaining a zone’s intended use or purpose.
