Week 4: United States Part 2


What does ‘regulatory taking’ mean in the context of the United States planning system? What is being balanced when considering regulatory taking? What is another form of ‘taking’?

  1. In the context of the US planning system, ‘regulatory taking’ refers to the form of property taking via the result of a regulation greatly inhibiting ways which owners may use their property to the extent that it’s almost parallel with direct appropriation. Imposing strict rules on land owners, (e.g. land use plans), alters private property rights (i.e. freedom to use/alter land). Regulatory taking balances public welfare against private property rights while not directly removing the property owners hold on the title. Power of eminent domain is another form of property taking, where state may take private property for public use but the owner must be paid fair compensation.

    Regulatory taking is the ‘taking’ of private property through regulations, resulting in severe restrictions comparable to direct appropriation. It attempts to balance property rights with public welfare; providing benefits to the environment and the wider public. However, does it violate the Fifth Amendment, and is it fair to the individual whose property rights may be eroded and land rendered useless? The Courts tend to sympathise with the individual and therefore regulatory takings are rare and regulations are often voided, which may compromise the sustainability of America’s environment.
    Power of eminent domain is another procedure of taking, when private property is removed from the owner’s title for public use and just compensation is given.

    Regulatory taking occurs when private property rights are eroded over time. This could involve implementing a new plan, which does not remove land title but restricts activity. The United States planning system has developed to protect individual rights. Therefore councils must justify plan changes because liberty and property must be protected under constitutional amendments. In regulatory taking, a balance of promoting community needs against protecting individual rights is imperative to prevent harm and provide benefits.

    Property can also be 'taken' through power of eminent domain. This involves the state seizing land title and compensating the land owner.

  4. A regulatory taking is the process of placing regulations on the use of private property in such a severe and manner which erodes property rights of an individual in the United States. When considering regulatory taking, the State has to carefully consider protecting the welfare of the public and providing social benefits with regulations, against the protection of individual property rights in the 5th amendment. Whereas power of eminent domain is another form of taking where private property is removed from the owner for public use and the owner is paid just compensation.

    In the U.S ‘regulatory taking’ evolved through the regulation of private land activities. Takings in the U.S must be compensated for or the regulation made void, this clause was designed to prevent private individuals unfairly bearing the public burden. ‘Regulatory taking’ means rules are so restrictive they become similar to “direct appropriation”.

    Balanced judgement considers the government’s objective and its justification. Because the U.s tends to sympathise with the individual cases of ‘regulatory taking’ are rare.

    Another form of taking is the “Power of Eminent Domain”; the government may take private property but must fairly compensate the owner.

    Regulatory taking in the United States is an appropriation of an owners private property rights by a governmental regulation, which goes beyond the governments lawful power. This may cause the owner to seek forms of compensation. Regulatory taking balances the protection of individual property rights sought out in the 5th amendment while protecting the welfare of the general public. The power of eminent domain is another form of property taking, where fair compensation is paid to the owner in order to take their land title for public use.

    In the US planning system, regulatory taking is a result of a heavy regulation that creates such a harsh restriction on the property owner, which results in a similar manner to a direct appropriation.
    When considering regulatory taking, two broad factors are balanced. Firstly, the extent of the economic impact on the property, including its potential value as a result of a regulation. And secondly, the manner in which the state acted in the process.
    Another form of taking is the power of eminent domain, whereby the state may take property for public benefit, provided there is just compensation.

  8. Regulatory taking is the result of a regulation that imposes a severe restriction on the owner’s property through regulation to the extent of having similar traits to appropriation. By imposing a regulation, private property rights have been altered, and therefore eroded. The balance lies within how much economic benefit is denied through regulation (whilst not removing complete rights from the owner) versus the benefit of public welfare. Another way property can be ‘taken’ is through the power of eminent domain, where the state may take private property for public use but must pay ‘just compensation’.

    Regulatory taking is the outcome of a regulation that enforces a severe restriction on the owner’s property, which limits freedom, and is arguably the same concept as direct appropriation.
    Regulatory taking balances the property rights of the individual under the Fifth Amendment while considering the protection of public welfare. Considerations include the extent of regulations imposed, and the nature of the governmental action.
    Another form of taking includes the power of eminent domain is when the government can acquire private property for intentions of public use, provided that appropriate compensation is paid for.

  10. Regulatory taking is when the government regulates strict property regulations which is similar to appropriation, therefore altering private property rights. Regulatory taking balances public welfare against private property rights. Power of eminent domain is another form of "taking" where the government can take private property for public use however, they must pay fair compensation.

  11. Regulatory taking in the US planning system refers to the regulation that consequences almost the same results as a direct appropriation due to imposing harsh restrictions on the owner’s property usage, which they do for promotion of public welfare, but causes issues with individual property rights. With regulatory taking, both providing benefits for the public as well as individual property rights of the 5th amendment need to be considered. Another form of ‘taking’ is the power of eminent domain through which the government may take private property for public purpose but they need to ensure those private owners are compensated.

    Regulatory taking in the United States planning system is a form of land use control, where substantial restrictions are placed on the land without directly appropriating property from the owner. It therefore effectively removes the owners’ rights of control on their land as the restrictions prevent certain activities taking place. When considering regulatory taking, there is a balance between protecting individual property rights, and needing a certain change for public welfare or benefit. Another form of ‘taking’ is the power of eminent domain. This is where the government has the right to take private land with compensation to the owner.

    Regulatory taking in the United States planning system is where a regulation imposes restrictions on private property rights in a way that heavily restricts how private property can be used by the owner. It is similar to appropriation. Regulatory taking balances the protection of individual rights with the protection of public welfare. Another form of ‘taking’ is the power of eminent domain which is where the government is able to take private property for the use of the public but they are required to pay the owner compensation when they do so.

  14. There are two forms of property taking; regulatory taking and power of eminent domain.

    Regulatory taking within the US planning system is the erosion of an individuals private property rights via the government enforcing severe restrictions upon that individuals property, in ways that are almost equivalent to direct appropriation.

    Regulatory taking balances the prospect for public welfare with the private property rights of individuals embedded within the Fifth Amendment

    Power of eminent domain is exerted globally, whereby the government exercises their “eminent” power to obtain private property for public use, however they must compensate the owner.

  15. In the US, regulatory taking looks at restricting individual's private property rights through regulations. Often, such limitations are so extreme that it almost has the same impacts as appropriation. This practice aims to promote public welfare by ensuring that one's use of land does not cause adverse impact on another's wellbeing. When considering regulatory taking, both impacts on public welfare and impacts on the property's economic potential are considered and balanced to ensure best practice. Another form of property taking is eminent domain. This concept looks at the government's ability to take private property for public use with just compensation.
