F.S. 333.11
333.11 Judicial review.
(1) Any person, political subdivision, or joint airport zoning board affected by a decision of a political subdivision or its administrative agency may apply for judicial relief to the circuit court in the judicial circuit where the political subdivision is located within 30 days after rendition of the decision. Review shall be by petition for writ of certiorari, which shall be governed by the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure.
(2) The court has exclusive jurisdiction to affirm, reverse, or modify the decision on the permit or other determination from which the appeal is taken and, if appropriate, to order further proceedings by the political subdivision or its administrative agency. The findings of fact by the political subdivision or its administrative agency, if supported by substantial evidence, shall be accepted by the court as conclusive, and an objection to a decision of the political subdivision or its administrative agency may not be considered by the court unless such objection was raised in the underlying proceeding.
(3) If airport zoning regulations adopted under this chapter are held by a court to interfere with the use and enjoyment of a particular structure or parcel of land to such an extent, or to be so onerous in their application to such a structure or parcel of land, as to constitute a taking or deprivation of that property in violation of the State Constitution or the Constitution of the United States, such holding shall not affect the application of such regulations to other structures and parcels of land, or such regulations as are not involved in the particular decision.
(4) A judicial appeal to any court may not be permitted under this section until the appellant has exhausted all of its remedies through application for local government permits, exceptions, and appeals.
