Get help finding the Right Real Property Lawyer for your case
The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a statute requiring state and local agencies to identify the environmental impacts of their actions and to avoid those impacts. A public agency must comply with CEQA when it undertakes a project that requires approval from a government agency, when it may cause a direct physical change or foreseeable change in the environment.
There are California Environmental Quality Act guidelines that public agencies are required to administer. These guidelines are found in the California Code of Regulations and provide objectives, criteria and procedures for the evaluation of projects. Sometimes, meeting these qualifications can be challenging and agencies need to get assistance from an environment lawyer.
Environment lawyers assist both private and public agency clients through CEQA guidelines and land use entitlement. Lawyers can also help with pre-project planning and strategy. Environment lawyers can review and prepare notices of exemption, initial studies, negative declarations, findings and statements, along with monitoring and reporting plans.
