Land Use Law Update

The purpose of these materials is to give Selectmen, Planning Board and ZBA Members and Staff a summary of the fifty plus land use/board related opinions issued by the New Hampshire Supreme Court since Fall 2007 (the last time I presented this lecture for the LGC). As with all legal issues, the actual of facts of any given case will control how any Court will decide that case. Accordingly, these materials, including any “practice points” that I may offer, contain my interpretation of these cases, which are not necessarily those of other practitioners in the field. If my Firm and I do not currently represent your municipality, I am not intending to give you any legal advice and strongly urge you to seek the advice of your own Municipal Attorney before proceeding on any given matter.
