Areas of Land Use Planning & Development

Negotiating Municipal Approvals and Development Agreements

We routinely work with municipal staff, land use planners, and engineers to establish defensible conditions of approval and any agreements necessary to efficiently implement land use planning approvals. We provide strategic support in incorporating conditions of approval into agreements to govern the development of land. Further, we assist in drafting subdivision, site plan control, and any other necessary development agreements.

Condominium Development Projects

We provide timely support for condominium projects through the following:

  • Drafting conditions of approval
  • Drafting Declarations and condominium by-laws
  • Providing advice regarding vacant land, standard, and common element condominiums
  • Condominium conversions
Hearings Before Tribunals and Courts

We regularly appear at the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal for municipalities and private clients on a number of Land Use Planning Appeals, including:

  • Plans of subdivisions and condominiums
  • Zoning amendments
  • Official Plan Amendments
  • Minor variances
  • Consents
  • Site Plan Approvals
  • Development Charges
Pits and Quarries Approvals​

We work with experts in fields across a variety of industries to support them in preparing compelling applications for any planning and licensing approvals. When needed, we appear at the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal to advocate on their behalf.
