Density

By on November 2, 2019

Density is a measure of the number of things in a particular land area.

This number helps planners to properly plan for development without putting excessive stress on the people who would actually be using space.

The things that are used for representing density are usually families, occupants, households, houses, etc.

The land area is usually represented by a per acre basis.

This means that a typical expression of density can be 10 houses per acre.

Density is used in density zoning, cluster zoning, land use intensity calculation, etc.

The trend in urban cities is to reduce residential density so as to improve quality of life. One way to do this is to require larger building lots.
