Zoning is a device of land-use planning used by local governments in most developed countries. The word is derived from the practice of designating permitted uses of land based on mapped zones which separate one set of land uses from another. Zoning may be use-based, or it may regulate building height, lot coverage, and similar characteristics, or some combination of these.
