Land Use and Environmental Group (Real Property Division)

Who We Are

The Land Use and Environmental Group is comprised of committees dealing with private and public involvement in land use decisions. The group's focus is on public regulation of private land through traditional zoning and similar controls, and the permissible circumstances and procedures under which government can exercise the power of eminent domain to take private land for public use. Also within its ambit is the regulation of land for specifically environmental purposes, and agribusiness, including agricultural environmental concerns and all aspects of farm acquisition, financing and operations.
