Welcome to the Land Use Department of East Hampton, CT. Our goal is to plan for the future development of East Hampton in a way that respects the past and enhances the future for all residents and visitors. Preservation of East Hampton’s small town character with abundant open spaces and natural resources is essential for maintaining a vibrant community that fulfills the core societal needs of its citizenry, while providing a strong and multi-tiered economic base that is vital to ensuring the quality of life we have come to expect and enjoy in our proud and independent community.
The department provides staff support to the Planning & Zoning Commission, Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency, and the Zoning Board of Appeals and facilitates applications to all three. Our department also handles all administrative applications, enforcement actions, and appeals. We also facilitate referrals to the Conservation-Lake Commission and the Design Review Board.
