Subdivision of Land

Let Land Planning Services assist you with the development and design of plans and the processing of applications to maximize your property’s potential through subdivision.

Permits for Commercial Development

Whether you intend to update, expand, change the use of or put a roof over your business, permits will be required from local, county and state agencies. Land Planning Services will guide you through the process in order to expedite your site plan approvals.

Permits for Coastal Erosion Mitigation and Docks

Whether you are placing sand, planting dunes, establishing biologs, repairing a bulkhead or erecting a revetment, you will need permits before you can protect your property from the hazards of erosion. With over ten years of experience, Land Planning Services can expedite your permits from the Trustees, Zoning Board of Appeals, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation or Army Corp. of Engineers, and in certain towns and villages, we are able to design and obtain permits for docks.

Due Diligence Reports

So you’re thinking of buying a property, but did it receive all the necessary permits and meet the conditions of previous approvals? Are there covenants and restrictions, a scenic easement or a common driveway declaration filed on the lot? What are the clearing restrictions or development constraints on the parcel? Let Land Planning Services investigate the property before you buy it.

Feasibility Studies

Can you expand the house, add a pool, subdivide the land or change the use of a property? Land Planning Services will conduct the research necessary to determine the likelihood of obtaining permits for such actions.

Green Development Planning

Solar, geothermal or wind power?  Land Planning Services will help you site improvements and obtain the permits needed to maximize the benefits of green technology.

Affordable Housing Permits

Land Planning Services will guide you through the permit process necessary to construct an apartment over your commercial building, build a mother-daughter apartment attached to your house or develop a multi-unit workforce housing project.

Planning and Permits to Enhance Real Estate Sales

If you really want to move that property, arm yourself with a report detailing the existing conditions and the feasibility of development, expansion or subdivision. Land Planning Services will also provide you with a site plan or subdivision map that can be distributed to potential buyers to help answer their many questions. Or, we will help you navigate the permit process so you can increase the value and market that property “with all permits in place.”
