The Sanders Firm, P.C.: SDP and Land Use

In New York City and the surrounding area, The Sanders Firm, P.C. defends your right to substantive due process (SDP) in relationship to land use. One of our given freedoms contained in the United States Constitution concerns property rights. Property rights pertain to all kinds of property, including our domiciles, things that we fill our homes with and the land that we own. Each of us has rights concerning SDP and land use. This is important to understand as these rights protect us from government intervention when it comes to how we decide we want to utilize our land.

Health, Morals, Safety

As it is with law enforcement practices and SDP, so too is land use and SDP viewed. In other words, in terms of the law, land use, and your civil rights, the power of the State extends to protecting the health, morals, and safety of the public. If a law or the enforcement of such law governing land use goes beyond these parameters, then it is a violation of your substantive due process.

SDP and Defending Land Use Rights

At The Sanders Firm, P.C., we ask those who want clarification regarding the SDP and land use to think of it in relationship to the Fifth Amendment, which limits the powers of the government and law enforcement and guarantees each of us due process. If the government is interfering with the use of your land and the law extends beyond the areas described as “health, morals, and safety,” then there is a chance that your SDP rights were violated.

Of course, in the United States our property and specifically our land represent the power of our freedom under our democracy. Ownership of land and its use are important rights, it may be bought and then used in the way in which we decide to use it. Ownership and the development of land generally increase ones wealth and considered a pursuit of a liberty interest. Land use is so important when it comes to substantive due process because it is part of our basic civil rights and sense of democracy. For someone to control what we do with our land or take it away from us there must be a legal basis.
