Land Use & Zoning Archives

How should incorrect zoning be addressed?

A Delaware land owner could face the need for assistance with zoning issues for various reasons, especially if there is a realization that the existing zoning is inconsistent with an intended use of a property. Such an issue might arise because of a change in business models. There might be a conflict because of a decision to house certain types of animals on a residential property. A business owner might seek permission to operate from a home in a residential neighborhood. There are several approaches to handling these zoning issues.

What are the different types of zoning?

Real estate interests can be affected by zoning issues as Delaware residents or business owners seek to purchase property for their needs. Zoning can also be a major concern to those already living in an area as newcomers seek zoning changes or waivers based on business plans or home activities. An understanding of the various types of zoning can be helpful. There are at least eight major types of zoning although the specific details and titles can vary from one jurisdiction to another.

Creating a viable future for a small Delaware town

There are limits to how many people can be naturally supported in a given area. This is what is referred to as the carrying capacity of an area. The smaller the area of a village, town or city, the fewer people that can live in that area without having to further develop it. The town of Lewes, Delaware, is trying to create a plan that will limit urban sprawl and preserve the natural space that makes the city so charming.
