Local and State Land Use Laws

Hawaii land use and zoning matters are governed by a complex overlay of state and local laws and regulations. In some cases, you may need help simply understanding the law in order to determine what you need to do in order to comply. In other cases, you may need to seek an exception to the law. At other times, our clients find themselves needing to challenge the law itself, or establishing an argument as to why the law shouldn’t apply to their property.

We’ve represented clients before both county and state agencies, including the State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources, the Leeward Planning Commission, and various other departments of public works and planning commissions.

The Process is as Important as the Law

Most land use cases are decided through an administrative process and without the intervention of a judge. The process may involve comparatively informal hearings in front of a local land use or zoning authority. While these initial stages may seem less formal than a court proceeding, they are no less important than a hearing in front of a judge. You may be required to exhaust the administrative process before you can file suit, and a court may not consider any arguments or evidence that weren’t presented during the administrative process. As a result, it is critical that the administrative process be handled correctly and with careful consideration from the very first step.

Common Land Use Issues

We work with clients in a wide variety of land use matters. Here are some of the land use issues we routinely assist our clients with:

  • Development issues
  • Covenants and restrictions
  • Access issues
  • Easement negotiation and disputes
  • Zoning compliance and enforcement

We have represented parties on both sides of the issue, and we’re confident that we can help you resolve whatever issue you may be facing.
