Land Use Case Law - Court Rulings
The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code, other state statutes, and local land use ordinances are frequently subject to interpretation by the courts. The volume of land use case law is large and constantly growing, making it almost impossible for elected and appointed local officials, professional planners, and municipal solicitors to stay well informed. This online resource is designed to provide a summary review of selected Pennsylvania and U.S. Federal Court decisions related to land use and land use controls. While the cases presented here are not intended to be an exhaustive, complete list, new cases will be added on a regular basis to ensure that this collection represents the "state-of-the-state" in terms of land use case law.
