Construction glossary term


Zoning is a set of rules that govern the development and operational use of land. It can be used to promote economic development, control traffic flow, manage noise levels, reserve living space for residents, and protect resources. It can also ban the use of residential property for business purposes, which can lead to conflicts if residents dispute the designated usage. Zoning laws can also regulate the details of construction in specific neighborhoods, such as limiting the maximum height of buildings in a given area. High-rise residences or offices can be banned on particular parcels through zoning.
