Zoning in New Jersey

Call Our Moorestown Zoning and Land Use Lawyers Today!

At Posternock Apell, PC, we understand that many clients — property owners, businesses, developers, and management companies, among others, may feel lost as to zoning and land use issues. As such, we are committed to the provision of exceptional, client-oriented service. It is our goal to form a partnership with the client early on and to keep communication direct and transparent. Zoning and land use restrictions often take parties by surprise — no matter how sophisticated the individual or organization.

Land use regulations can put impose substantial limitations on the ability of a property owner/possessor to modify, expand, and maintain their property.

In many of these situations, the issue is not one of being unaware of the relevant regulations, but the expectations simply not coinciding with the reality on the ground. For example, a developer may be expecting the municipality to rezone an area in such a way as to give the developer an opportunity to expand their existing property developments. If the municipality does not move forward with the rezoning plan, however, this could put a serious strain on the viability of the property that the developer invested such significant resources into.

Here at Posternock Apell, PC, our attorneys have extensive experience advocating on behalf of New Jersey clients in the zoning and land use context. We have worked with a variety of clients — from individual owners to large corporate developers — at every stage of the process, whether we are assisting with permit applications or resolving a zoning dispute through a complex administrative appeals procedure. NJ municipalities may establish their own zoning and land use guidelines, making it quite challenging for those who are unfamiliar with such disputes and procedures to effectively advocate for your rights. We have the background and experience necessary to do so. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.
