Land Use, Permits & Municipal Law
What is Land Use Planning and Municipal Law?
Land use planning is a designed and systematic approach toward changing the natural world. Its end goal is to produce a man-made landscape that features either structures or semi-natural habitats such as lightly developed parkland, pastures, or woodlots. Examples of land use planning could be a reclaimed strip mine or the mitigation of a landfill; however, land use may also involve planning for a new quarry, a railroad spur line, or the right-of-way for a pipeline.
Municipalities play a key role in the land use and development process by deciding the types of buildings that are suitable for an area of land and the types of uses that are appropriate given the surroundings.
