Floating Zone

By on May 5, 2019

A floating zone is a land area that is specified in the description of the area’s zoning regulations but not officially found on the zoning map until the developer obtains rezoning approval from the relevant authorities.

This means that a particular area has been designated by the authorities for a particular purpose, but the actual location of it can actually change.

The actual site might then be finally become official after all plans have become concrete.

The zoning district is therefore not pre-determined or conclusively fixed.

It could be that the local authorities are still considering which developer to offer the contract to.

At the same time they are evaluating the different proposals that are being presented to them.

The plans of developers might affect the actual site. So jumping the gun and including the zone on an official map can be immature.
