What is a Special Use Permit?

Special Use Permits can be a great land use tool. With proper legal analysis of a town’s ordinances, an application for a special use permit can result tremendous improvements to a home, small business, or corporation.

In the past year one local property owner converted her garage loft space into an accessory dwelling unit. Another homeowner won approval to construct a chicken coop in his backyard. He wanted to raise the chickens like his grandfather did many years ago. A local businessman was allowed to store material in excess of the twenty cubic yard limit through a successful special use permit application.

A special use permit can not only improve a home’s character and physical layout but can also raise property values.

If you have contemplated a ┬áhome improvement project – from an accessory dwelling to a chicken coop – call Callaghan & Callaghan today.
