Land Use

With the rapid development of Western North Carolina, land use and zoning are often contentious issues. The Van Winkle Law Firm represents developers, landowners and local governments in traversing laws regulating housing, commerce and industry. Land use issues have the potential to damage commercially viable projects and diminish the value of property held by businesses and individuals. Our focus is protecting the interests of all parties as the regulatory landscape of the region evolves. Our Land Use team partners with other practice groups within the firm – including Commercial and Residential Real Estate, Business Entity Formation and Taxation – to provide clients with comprehensive legal services in land use and zoning.
