The need for a variance arises when a particular piece of property cannot be developed according to the requirements associated with the allowable zoning for that property.  For area variances this may include, but not be limited to, not being able to meet the following:

  • Lot area
  • Setbacks to front, rear or side property lines
  • Property width
  • Property height
  • Etc.

Each property and individual situation is unique and may not necessarily meet the zoning standards.  Cramer Consulting Group has the expertise and knowledge to guide you through this process.  Unlike many expeditors that handle variances, Cramer Consulting Group, particularly the principal, Thomas W. Cramer, is recognized as an expert in planning and environmental issues by the municipalities on Long Island.  This designation of “expert” carries with it extremely important legal ramifications which are more fully discussed under the expert witness heading.  Click here for more information.
