Land Use Law

When zoning and land use roadblocks stand in the way of your objectives for a real estate investment or development project, Carella Byrne’s zoning and land use attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to move you forward.

Since the firm’s founding in 1976, Carella Byrne’s real estate lawyers have facilitated countless development efforts throughout New Jersey. We efficiently and expeditiously obtain the approvals, permits, modifications, variances, and other accommodations that allow our clients to proceed with their plans.

We recognize that the development and use of real estate does not happen in isolation. It requires the assent and cooperation of state and local authorities, neighboring property owners, and the larger community. Our zoning and land use attorneys regularly interact with officials who make the decisions that affect property owners and are cognizant of both the written and unwritten rules that govern the interactions between zoning authorities and landowners. When adverse decisions threaten to impede our clients’ plans, our attorneys possess both the advocacy and negotiating skills that can effectively challenge those decisions or lead to mutually beneficial resolutions.

We assist our clients with any issues that impact the use and development of their property, including:

  • Zoning and Planning
  • Development Applications
  • Preliminary and Final Site Plan Applications
  • Variance Applications
  • Easements
  • Building Code Issues
  • Environmental Issues
  • Redevelopment
  • Subdivision Approvals
  • Eminent Domain and Condemnation

When your real property goals intersect with laws, ordinances, and zoning codes that could impede your progress, we welcome the opportunity to assist you. Contact us to arrange for a consultation with one of our New Jersey and New York zoning and land use attorneys.
