Land Use & Zoning

At Riley Riper Hollin & Colagreco, our land use attorneys put decades of in-depth entitlement experience to work so that your next project stays on the track to success.

We have helped take some of the largest projects in the Mid-Atlantic region from the drawing board to reality with economy and efficiency. We also apply our vast real estate knowledge and experience to smaller projects. In Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, our Land Use/Zoning practice is breaking new ground for national and regional clients in areas that include:

  • Residential and Mixed-Use Development
  • Office Development
  • Retail Development
  • Industrial Development
  • Institutional Development including Hospital, School and Religious Entities
  • PUC/Utility Projects
  • Alternative Energy including large scale Solar and WInd Projects
  • Brownfield Remediation and Redevelopment

RRHC lawyers are veterans when it comes to analyzing zoning impacts and environmental regulations; leading due diligence investigations, obtaining subdivision, land development, conditional use, special exception and variance approvals; as well as obtaining rezonings and zoning text amendments. We have worked with virtually every federal, state and local regulatory agency in the region, in order to obtain permits and approvals for our clients.

Our far-reaching practice combines a solid foundation of all aspects of land use and zoning with a thorough understanding of the challenges our clients are certain to face today. We help navigate stringent environmental controls, stay up-to-date on ever-changing land use laws and the latest judicial decisions, and are dedicated to identifying ways that will save time and expense. But we don’t do it alone; we work closely with our clients to help them understand and prepare for the issues we’ll face together.

Our legal team knows that litigation is not, and should not, be your first option when it comes to resolving land use and zoning issues. That’s why our approach to any development project begins with a thorough assessment of all the relevant factors that may influence the project. We then help identify the options that offer our clients the least amount of potential conflict and the most promising outcome.

RRHC’s reputation as a regional leader in land use and zoning law is based on our enviable track record, our talented attorneys, and our commitment to open and constant client communication.
