Understanding the Law of Zoning and Land Use Control, now in its Third Edition, is a comprehensive and clearly written text addressing zoning, land use, and environmental regulation in a national, jurisdiction-independent manner. It first sets out the constitutional framework for land use regulation in a discussion of the takings clause, followed by a discussion of the basic form of land use controls, Euclidian zoning, and then non-Euclidian regulations. Also discussed are administrative and legislative relief from land use controls, the bread and butter of a land use practice.
The book is divided into six parts:
Part 1: Fundamental Concepts: The Police Power, Takings, and Zoning
Part 2: The Zoning Forms of Action
Part 3: Economic Discrimination and Zoning
Part 4: Wetlands and Beaches
Part 5: Regulating the User, Not the Use
Part 6: Halting an Owner's Further Regulation
