Zoning and Planning

There is a rigorous regulatory environment on the East End of Long Island. Municipalities have enacted complex regulations designed to preserve and protect open space, farm fields, waterways and wetlands habitat areas.


Land development permits are discretionary, and issued by a variety of local boards, including Planning Boards, Zoning Boards of Appeals, and Boards of Architectural Review and Historic Preservation. Regional agencies such as the Department of Environmental Conservation and Suffolk County Department of Health Services are also often involved in the process. Compliance with the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) may be required.


Our firm is thoroughly conversant with all applicable laws and regulations for land development. We have over 25 years of experience and knowledge in obtaining land use permits. Our goal is to obtain approvals which accomplish client goals and comply with mandated environmental policies.
