Zoning Issues Take Center Stage With Event Venues

It is one of the hottest trends in wedding venues and an expanding new business concept for entrepreneurs. The rustic-themed wedding trend has injected new income into communities and created opportunities that did not exist before.

Cashing In On The Trend

Across the country, including Florida, enterprising business owners have built or renovated barns to cash in on the trend and provide an income stream from a sizeable property. There are many versions of this innovative business concept that fully comply with all zoning and permitting laws in their jurisdiction. However, there are many of these businesses that have been closed or have not been allowed to open due to zoning regulation and property use conflicts.

Awareness Matters

Some property and business owners’ zoning and land use issues are recent examples of how awareness matters when it comes to local land regulations. For some properties, it’s agricultural zoning does not allow event venue placement. Other properties have started their businesses without consulting zoning or building inspection laws. This situation is a lesson for prospective business owners to do proactive research and planning to avoid damaging consequences.

Zoning Regulation Consequences

The consequences of running astray from zoning regulations can be steep. Ultimately, in the case of purchasing a business or land to build the business on, an oversight can result in a real estate or business deal failing. Another unfortunate result is that customers of a closed event venue lose their wedding reservation and have to make other plans, sometimes at the last minute.

Plan Ahead

It is essential to get legal advice about land use and zoning when considering the purchase of real estate for any business venture. This is especially important when you are planning to use property in a manner unlike its previous customary use. Some proactive consultation can prevent expensive mistakes.
