What is land use?

Comprehensive development plan has divided the area into different zones and accordingly lands have to be used for the prescribed activities. Every survey number has specific prescribed land use.  These are:-

1. Residential.

2. Commercial (Retail and Wholesale business)

3. Industrial (light and service industries, medium industries & heavy industries)

4. Public and Semi-public.

5. Utilities and Services.

6. Parks, open spaces, playgrounds (including public recreational areas).

7. Transportation and communication.

Different land uses can also be prescribed for single survey number. It is very important to ascertain the land use prescribed for particular survey number because floor area ratio sets back coverage ad varies according to the land use.
