Land Use

Bankhead Law Firm helps real estate developers satisfy land use laws and achieve their goals Jordan has assisted developers with many land use issues, including:


A developer sought to reclassify 18 acres from agricultural to commercial zoning in order to build a business park. After evaluating the requirements for a special exception to the zoning laws in Panola County, Bankhead successfully argued before the Panola County Planning Commission for a special exception to commercial. Following these efforts, the Panola County Board of Supervisors approved the commercial zoning for the 18 acre business park.


A seller needed assistance to resolve a boundary dispute in an assemblage before a developer would buy their property. Bankhead Law Firm successfully negotiated a boundary settlement to the satisfaction of all parties involved. After this settlement, the developer purchased both tracts of land and built an apartment complex on the combined property


Jordan helped a developer wishing to build an apartment complex comply with the Oxford, MS Tree Ordinance.  Working with the land surveyor and project engineer, Bankhead Law Firm helped with the presentation of a site plan before the Oxford Planning Commission.


Working with a subdivision developer, Bankhead Law Firm prepared all construction contracts necessary to install utilities, roads, and comply with all City of Oxford rules and regulations governing the platting of a subdivision. Handling the project from start to finish, Jordan wrote the contracts and subdivision covenants, served as the nonprofit development corporation’s board attorney, and oversaw the platting and final approval of the subdivision plat before the Oxford Planning Commission and Board of Alerman. The subdivision was approved by city officials and completed on time by the developer.
