K&F is prepared to represent our clients’ interests before local planning boards and boards of appeals with respect to land use issues. We are able to help citizens who apply for special permits, variances and other relief in order to improve their homes, as well as real estate developers and home builders who are pursuing more complex projects and developments. We also are prepared to work with neighbors who oppose the applications for special permits, variances and other relief, which (if allowed) would unreasonably disrupt the neighborhood. Further, we are ready to pursue appeals of decisions of local boards with respect to such matters as the issuances of variances and special permits as well as the division of parcels.
One of our Partners was the Chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals for many years in Manchester by the Sea, MA. Consequently, he is aware of the need to be familiar with the trends of boards, which can be critical with respect to the effective presentation of an application for a permit, variance or other relief involving the use of land. K&F enjoys its unique background in land use law, and our clients enjoy the benefits from this background.
