Land Use Dispute Resolution

Wednesday, 25th July 2013

<p style="font: normal normal normal 1.3em/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 0px">&quot;Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a way for parties to work through and resolve problems, conflicts, and disputes short of litigation. &nbsp;Formal dispute resolution can take several forms, the most common being mediation. &nbsp;</p><p style="font: normal normal normal 1.3em/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 0px">&nbsp;</p><p style="font: normal normal normal 1.3em/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 0px">Mediation is an informal, yet structured process in which a neutral third person (or persons), known as a mediator, helps parties to reach a mutually acceptable solution to issues that are causing conflict between them. &nbsp;All parties to the dispute are given a full opportunity to be heard and to share their perspectives on the situation. The mediator summarizes the information shared by each party and assists the parties in defining the issues in dispute. The mediator does not decide how the dispute should be resolved, but instead guides the parties through a process in which they discuss the issues, generate options for resolving the dispute, and design their agreement. &nbsp;Mediations can result in a resolution reached in an hour or two or can involve multiple sessions and occur over a period of several months. &nbsp;Mediation solutions are non-binding.</p><p style="font: normal normal normal 1.3em/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 0px">&nbsp;</p><p style="font: normal normal normal 1.3em/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 0px">Please note that the Department of Local Affairs does not advocate for any specific dispute resolution process. &nbsp;It is the department&rsquo;s belief that local governments must determine for themselves what process will be most beneficial and productive in the resolution of their land use conflicts.&quot;</p>
