Land use planning and the environment: a casebook
608 pages. No updates available.
The authors of this text identify and explore intersections between land-use planning law and environmental regulation. Increasingly, local and state governments share in the regulatory responsibility for environmental protection with the federal government. Also discussed are the hot-button topics of regulatory takings issues and zoning. This text "offers a unique strategy for addressing these overlapping and, at times, conflicting administrative regimes." Throughout the book, the authors explicitly identify and explore intersections between land-use planning law and environmental regulation. Professors, students, and law and planning practitioners with strong backgrounds and exposure to “traditional” environmental law will find these intersections a timely opportunity to examine familiar topics from a different perspective.
