Florida Land Development Regulations is an informational website, intended to offer information and resources on relevant laws, court cases, varied approaches, specific uses, and a variety of issues that Florida land development regulations (a.k.a. zoning codes or land development codes) must, should, or might address. The goal is to make relevant information easily accessible to those that write, administer, use, make decisions on, or challenge land development regulations in Florida.
