Zoning is the way the government controls the physical development of land and the kind of uses to which each individual property may be put.
Zoning laws typically specify the areas in which residential, industrial, recreational, commercial or retail activities may take place. For example, residential zoning might allow for only single-family detached homes as opposed to duplexes or apartment complexes. On the other hand, commercial zoning might be zoned to permit only certain commercial or industrial uses in one jurisdiction, but permit a mix of housing and businesses in another jurisdiction.
