Land Use, Zoning & Regulation

Practice Areas

Zoning laws consist of the regulation of new construction in urban areas and how urban land or real estate can be used. Texas has the power to regulate and restrict the use of real estate within the cities and municipalities of the state, as well as regulate the specifics of height, spacing, and construction of buildings within its jurisdiction. Most zoning disputes involve wrongful denials of permits and licenses, exactions and regulatory takings, and annexation procedures. We can prepare zoning applications, draft regulations, and provide representation in negotiations and hearings for developers and landowners. Navigating the permitting process of new developments can be very challenging.
