The implementation of the 2030 Cantonal Master Plan and the new Federal Law on land use planning give the Canton of Geneva many challenges.

The adoption of reserved areas, the downgrading of new perimeters in the development zone and the development of new localised neighbourhood plans are multiplying.

Here are some examples of cases in which we have advised and represented clients:

  • Opposing the introduction of a reserved area.
  • Appealing against a precautionary refusal issued in relation to a building permit.
  • Advising a Commune in connection with a major property development.
  • Opposing a downgrading project.
  • Proposing an approach for converting a former barn in an agricultural zone into housing.
  • Assisting and representing a developer in connection with the preparation of an LNP (localised neighbourhood plan).
  • Opposing a localised neighbourhood plan in a development zone.
  • Assisting and advising in order to obtain the downgrading of land into an agricultural zone.
  • Advising and supporting an owner of land located in a development area considered as a priority by the Canton.
