    What Are Land Use Rights?

    Zoning and land use regulations are put in place by local governments to protect public health, ensure the safety of those in the community, keep natural resources safe from harm and ensure that no building project endangers the environment. It is essential that buyers, sellers and developers understand the impact of these laws on their plans before they commence on any project.

    Check Zoning Laws Before Starting a Project

    Let us assume for a minute that you own a piece of land. The land lies within the city limits. It is also located within a county or parish. Therefore, the owner must check the laws of both the city and the county before starting any project.

    The 5 Categories of Zoning Laws

    While local governments can determine their own zoning laws, most zoning laws fall into one of five broad categories. They are commercial, industrial, residential, recreation and agriculture. A developer cannot start a project on land that is not zoned for that purpose.
