Changes of Zoning
June 8th, 2015 by Geoff Baldwin
Keep up with local happenings, zoning or land use amendments of your local authority, as the present zoning of your land may change and leave you disadvantaged; unless you lodge an objection and respond to the advertised “public comment” period normally offered prior to any major changes.
We have seen many owners, who didn’t respond to the call from local authorities – or were oblivious to what was happening in their area, only to then inherit disadvantageous rezonings downgradings and amendments to density or use, or simply exclusions altogether from an advantageous rezoning etc, because they just didn’t respond to or weren’t aware of intended changes which had been clearly advertised by the LA in their area.
Absent owners suffer from this quite often!! Get someone local to keep you up-to-date with happenings and local news etc, and ensure your mailing address is always current!! If you move – advise the LA immediately.
