Land Use & Zoning

The Roberts & Stevens’ Land Use practice group is composed of lawyers from the government and public policy law, real estate law, and litigation practice groups. These attorneys are knowledgeable about specialized issues such as local and state laws regarding land use, zoning, subdivision, storm water, and historic preservation. They have worked with local governments, property owners, neighborhood groups, and developers of both large and small projects in Western North Carolina.

Local governments, property owners, and others are constantly confronted with new land use regulations. With a clear understanding of applicable legal requirements, the need for agency review at all levels of government and ensuing litigation challenging those reviews, Roberts & Stevens’ Land Use attorneys regularly guide clients through the land use regulatory maze and related court actions.
