Real Estate and Land Use

Land Use, Planning and Zoning

The success of real estate developments often begins with securing necessary zoning approvals from local governments. It’s an unpredictable process that requires creativity, perseverance, and attention to detail.

Morningstar Law Group advises developers and owners on rezonings and other entitlement issues. Our zoning lawyers have an in-depth understanding of local zoning requirements and how potential projects may fit within a community’s long-term plans and policies. Our land use attorneys also work with clients to obtain special use permits, variances, and other approvals before quasi-judicial bodies, such as boards of adjustment.

An integral part of our work includes providing insight into the local political landscape and neighborhood issues. Our land use attorneys are closely tied to local communities across the Triangle in North Carolina and are intimately familiar with the planning processes and decision makers in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina and other towns.

Our experience, familiarity and relationships allow our clients to navigate the planning and zoning process and move their projects forward. Throughout this process, our land use, planning and zoning lawyers work collaboratively with everyone involved in the land development process, including architects, engineers, landscape architects, traffic engineers, appraisers, and other partners.
