Falmouth, MA Home Rule Wetlands Bylaw-Related Defense Featured

We successfully defended a Cape Cod coastal homeowner from challenges by his neighbor to his state and local wetlands permits for home expansion on his waterfront lot, in the Town of Falmouth, which has a particularly comprehensive local Home Rule wetlands bylaw and Conservation Commission regulations, on a lot surrounded by wetland Resource Areas.

We successfully defended these permits through an adjudicatory hearing at DEP under the Wetlands Protection Act and in Superior Court and the Appeals Court under the bylaw, which upheld the Town.
