Land Use Litigator Series: The Interpretation of North Carolina Zoning Laws [VIDEO]

The latest installment of the Womble Carlyle Land Use Video Series is here.

In this episode, John and Mike discuss the seemingly simple but decidedly important world of the the interpretation of zoning laws.  Want to build your project?  Better get that proper interpretation. Didn't get the interpretation you like?  Better appeal it.  Not sure if you have an actual interpretation?  Better be certain, lest timeframes will run or decisions will change.

Some of the questions we'll "hit on" in this episode include:

  • Why is interpretation of zoning laws important to landowners, business owners and developers

  • Who is responsible for interpreting zoning laws?

  • What is the difference between a casual and formal interpretation of a zoning law?

  • Why seek a formal interpretation?

  • Should you involve a lawyer when seeking a formal interpretation of a zoning law?

  • What rule would you select as the most important rule of the interpretation of zoning laws?

  • Why is this rule so important?

  • Do you have other means to change the interpretation of a zoning law?
