We are pleased to present you with another Planning and Zoning Law update which contains summaries of recent court and appeal tribunal decisions.
We direct your attention to two recent Supreme Court decisions. One of the decisions establishes that the rule established in the Bar Yehuda case can be applied retroactively. This rule provides that during the period of development the developers are required to pay the betterment levy.
The second case concerns the interpretation of “agricultural use” in lease agreements with the Israel Land Authority in the context of designations of the land and its permitted uses in accordance with the agreements for the purpose of calculating the betterment levy.
