The Ninth Edition of Planning and Control of Land Development continues its tradition of providing a thorough and comprehensive review of land use law. All chapters have been revised and updated; this edition covers recent takings cases, the Supreme Court¿s important new decision on the federal Fair Housing Act, and the Court's new free speech decision on sign regulation. Special attention has been given to developments under the federal Religious Land Use Act. Teaching cases are the same as in the last edition with new cases as needed to update presentation of the materials. This casebook is different, and better than any other you have ever seen in two important ways. First, because sustainability is important in virtually every aspect of land use law, the authors have signaled sustainability issues throughout the book¿no separate chapter, no single-subject casebook, just the fully integrated treatment of this critical subject. Second, hundreds of URLs been added or updated and converted to tiny URLs for easy entry. So far as we know, for the first time ever in any casebook you will also find over 600 Quick Response (QR) Codes so that teachers and students using a free app on their smartphones need only point and click to be taken directly to the vast array of resources available on the worldwide web. This casebook has broken the bonds of the printed page.

The new edition enables professors to teach a broad range of traditional and innovative land use law subjects, ranging from zoning and site planning to sustainable development. The first six chapters of the book focus on traditional practice areas in land use regulation at the state and local levels, and includes a full range of federal First and Fifth Amendment issues as well as preemption (all from the existing chapters in the book which have updated notes/commentary and a sprinkling of new principal cases, enough to modernize the book without requiring significant teaching overhauls). For a nuts-and-bolts approach to land use law the first two-thirds of the book will fully cover a three-credit course. The next three chapters explore land use techniques that go beyond traditional planning and Euclidean zoning such as smart growth, transit-oriented development, new urbanism, and form based zoning. Energy and building codes that address environmental and social concerns are explored, as is the topic of local environmental law that includes: aquifer, wetlands, habitat, and steep slopes protection; storm water control; and floodplains management. How environmental impact review, biological sequestration, and climate change mitigation integrate with local land use regulation is also explored. The book ends with a focus on the critical connection between human settlement patterns-the result of local zoning and land use plans-and climate change management, where students examine methods employed by local governments, with state encouragement, to use land use planning and regulation to design buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and regions to reduce energy and fossil fuel consumption and lower carbon dioxide emissions. For professors and students interested in discovering effective methods for dealing with the worsening threat of climate change, workable strategies and needed encouragement are provided. The last third of the book works well for faculty who wish to challenge students to creatively apply the tools they have learned about to address cutting edge issues facing communities. Faculty have used this material in the basic land use course, as a one credit add-on, and as material for an advanced land use course (making it convenient for students to keep the book).

The global demand for clean, renewable energy has rapidly expanded in recent years and will likely continue to escalate in the decades to come. Wind and solar energy systems often require large quantities of land and airspace, so their growing presence is generating a diverse array of new and challenging land use conflicts. Wind turbines can create noise, disrupt views or radar systems, and threaten bird populations. Solar energy projects can cause glare effects, impact pristine wilderness areas, and deplete water resources. Developers must successfully navigate through these and myriad other land use conflicts to complete any renewable energy project. Policymakers are increasingly confronted with disputes over these issues and are searching for rules to effectively govern them. Tailoring innovative policies to address the unique conflicts that arise in the context of renewable energy development is crucial to ensuring that the law facilitates rather than impedes the continued growth of this important industry. This book describes and analyses the property and land use policy questions that most commonly arise in renewable energy development. Although it focuses primarily on issues that have arisen within the United States, the book’s discussions of international policy differences and critiques of existing approaches make it a valuable resource for anyone exploring these issues in a professional setting anywhere in the world.
