A Look at the New Housing Appeals Board hosted by NHMA

October 13, 2021 | 12:00pm

Venue :Virtual

The Housing Appeal Board (HAB) was established by the legislature during the 2020 session and consists of three full-time board members appointed by the New Hampshire Supreme Court, who are deemed “learned and experienced in questions of land use.” The Housing Appeals Board hears appeals from local land use board decisions involving “questions of housing and housing development.”

Join NHMA’s Legal Services Counsel, Stephen C. Buckley, who will review the jurisdiction and procedures of the HAB by detailing the key elements of the governing statutes, RSA chapter 679, and the currently applicable administrative rules. A discussion will also be provided on recent decisions by the HAB involving the Town of Francestown and the Town of Pembroke.
