Planning and zoning concerns don't just arise in the course of a municipal law file or with respect to a major development project. They can be just as relevant to a residential or commercial purchase and sale, a minor by-law dispute, or the day-to-day operation of a small business. But, while these issues aren't just the province of specialists, they are specialized, and informed guidance is absolutely essential - and now conveniently available.

Halsbury's Planning and Zoning volume provides practitioners with a thoughtful and thorough explanation of this important area of law. Written by one of Canada's most respected land use practitioners, this national work clearly organizes and presents the black letter law and explains the nuanced framework that governs land use and development across Canada. It delivers straightforward answers to the kind of questions, both large and small, that lawyers will wrestle with on a variety of files, and does so in an accessible and cost-effective manner.
