Subdivision and Land Development Approvals

Land Use and Zoning Attorneys Guiding our Clients

Most development projects require subdivision approval, and/or land development approval. The subdivision and land development review and approval processes are often complex and should be led by an experienced land use and zoning attorney who can protect your legal rights and ensure that your project moves along efficiently through the process. Successful projects may also require related approvals, including zoning relief (e.g., variances, special exceptions, and conditional uses), rezoning, zoning map changes, and zoning text amendments, as well as permitting. At Kaplin Stewart, our team of highly accomplished land use and zoning attorneys, paralegals and certified land planner can guide your development project through the various challenges associated with the land development and subdivision approval processes.
