On October 8, 2010, the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court released its opinion invalidating key provisions of the 2008 “third round” regulations issued by the New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing (COAH). Meanwhile, the Legislature is actively moving a bill that would abolish COAH and replace it with a new Mount Laurel compliance regime. The court’s decision and the legislation have important consequences for proposed developments throughout the state.
