In recent years, land use and zoning issues have become increasingly complicated and contentious. Developers, land owners, and local governments come to Poyner Spruill for our vast experience with the full spectrum of land use and zoning matters. Whether it’s appearing before, or advising, an elected or appointed board or representing clients in state or federal court on a myriad zoning and land use disputes, we are known for representing clients in high stakes and contentious zoning matters. The wide variety of real estate projects and uses we handle includes mixed-use development, multi-family, retail, office, industrial, concrete and asphalt plants, mining, automotive dealerships, solid waste facilities, and religious institutions.

We represent developers and land owners in obtaining all types of land use and zoning approvals, including legislative rezonings, ordinance amendments, development agreements, site plan and subdivision approvals, and quasi-judicial decisions, such as special and conditional use permits, certificates of appropriateness, appeals of administrative decisions, and variance requests. We also represent developers and local governments in a variety of litigation matters involving land use disputes in both state and federal court. These issues include vested rights, constitutional matters, scope of local government authority, and certiorari appeals from local land use boards to the superior and appellate courts.
