Planning and Zoning (2013 Reissue)
William A. Buholzer, B.A., M.A. (Planning), LL.B.

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. The Halsbury's Planning and Zoning (2013 Reissue) title provides practitioners with a thoughtful and thorough explanation of this important area of law. Topics covered include:

Federal role in, and jurisdiction over, planning and zoning Local planning authorities Official plans Zoning and development controls Development approval procedures Subdivision controls Heritage conservation Enforcement of land use regulations
