Acreage Zoning

By on July 4, 2019

Acreage zoning refers to zoning rules specifically requiring larger building lots, with the intention of reducing population density in that particular area.

They are also sometimes referred to as large-lot zoning or snob zoning.

This is actually a tough decision by local authorities and would only be implemented after a thorough thought process.

The reason being that the larger the lots, the larger the houses might be. Thus, making real estate more expensive for the average household.

However, reducing residential density with acreage zoning might be critical to ensure the social well-being of the population living in the area.

When an area is too populated, infrastructure might suffer as they are not equipped to handle so much human traffic.

And when push comes to shove, the people might blame the authorities.

This is why it can be a tough decision to approve, yet necessary for order.
