Planning in California is governed and directed by an ever evolving and changing body of legislation and case law. At the heart of these laws are those establishing requirements for general plans, specific plans, zoning, land division, redevelopment, and environmental analysis. The Statutes and Regulations drop down menu summarizes these relevant California statutes and provides links to the full text of the laws and supporting guidelines.
This section provides an overview of new legislation, regulations, and court decisions that refine and expand planning practice. The resources to the right highlight recent and applicable land use, environmental, and real estate law updates.
