Experienced Lawyers for Zoning and Land Use Cases in Missouri

Zoning and Land Use Attorneys in St. Louis Missouri

Zoning and land use laws are often confusing and vague. To make things worse, governments regularly make changes to zoning and land use laws and, in many cases, people are unaware of these changes until it is too late. You may have grand plans for your property and may believe that you can do whatever you want with your land. However, zoning law amendments mean that even the best plans, can go to waste.

When you are faced with unfair zoning and land use laws and restrictions, you need an excellent real estate law attorney to help you fight. For example, in some cases the zoning and land use restrictions can cause the devaluation of your property and financial loss. Severe zoning and land use restrictions on the way you can use your land can result in “regulatory taking” as the government has figuratively taken your property. In any of these cases, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.

Understanding Zoning and Land Use

Zoning is a process used by governments during city planning. Zoning codes allow city planners to divide land and designate certain purposes for each part. These mapped zones ensure that a city or urban area is well planned and works efficiently. This being said, zoning regulations mean that each zone has separate land use restrictions from the next. These control how land can be used in these zones. Zoning and land use laws are designed to prevent indiscriminate development and improper and inefficient city planning and building.

However, in some cases, people feel that the restrictions put in place by zoning laws can be very severe. For example, sometimes zoning and land use laws prevent commercial property developers from building commercial and residential properties like they want to. Zoning and land use laws have also been criticized as they are said to increase segregation. Ineffective zoning also hampers economic development. When zoning laws limit your rights or place unfair restrictions on how you use your land, you should consult an expert attorney to determine your rights.
