Connecticut Leaders On Land Use Issues

Gregory and Adams, P.C., is well-known by boards, commissions, businesses, developers and individuals throughout the region for its leadership in handling sensitive development issues involving subdivisions, wetlands and open space.

We can manage all aspects of your land use pursuits, including:

  • Town/city approvals: We obtain all necessary land development approvals from town and city municipal agencies, including planning, zoning, and wetlands approvals and ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
  • Federal/state approvals: We obtain all necessary land development approvals from federal and state agencies, and ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.
  • Appeals: We prosecute appeals on behalf of clients who have had an application denied by federal, state or municipal agencies. We also represent clients in appeals of newly enacted regulations.
  • Land use analysis: We conduct "due diligence" on properties to advise clients on how to best maximize the use of land and remain in compliance with federal, state and municipal regulations.

Land use and development in Connecticut is a complex and animated domain in real estate. There are exceptions to almost every rule, and each situation is unique.

  • Subdivisions

Wise Counsel About Land Use And Development
