ARTICLE V
ZONE REGULATIONS
SECTION 11. General Provision
Zone regulations refer to Use, Density and Bulk and Building/ Structure Design
Regulations as described below:
Allowable Uses
The uses enumerated in the succeeding sections are neither exhaustive nor all-inclusive. The City
Zoning Board of Appeals (CZBA) shall, subject to the requirements of this Article, allow other uses not
enumerated hereunder provided that they are compatible with the uses expressly allowed.
Allowance of further uses shall be based on the intrinsic qualities of the land and the socio-economic
and ecological/biophysical potential of the locality with due regard to the maintenance of the essential
qualities of the zone.
Specific uses/activities for lesser density within a particular zone (R-1) may be allowed within the zone
of higher density (R-2, R-3) but not vice versa, nor in another zone and its subdivisions (e.g. GC, C1,
C2), except for uses expressly allowed in said zones, such that the cumulative effect of zoning shall be
intra-zonal and not inter-zonal.
Each zone lists land uses that are, may, and are not considered appropriate, i.e. lists of permitted,
special permit and prohibited uses, as follows:
Column 1

Column 2

Column 3

Allowable Uses, i.e. will be


approved with or without
conditions

Uses that may or may not


receive approval or require
Special Permit approval

Prohibited Uses, i.e. will


not be approved and
cannot be appealed

List of the uses that are


considered to be appropriate
in the zone.

Everything else not listed


as allowable or prohibited.

List of the uses that are


considered
to
be
inappropriate
in the
zone.

The aim of the Ordinance is to give certainty to developers. Too much flexibility creates uncertainty
and is therefore not going to encourage economic activity, or a reasonable standard of development.
SECTION 12. Regulations in Base Zones
Section 12.1. Regulations in Residential Zone
A RZ shall be used principally for dwelling / housing purposes so as to maintain peace
and quiet of the area within the zone. The following are the allowable and prohibited
uses:

prescribed maximum FARs shall apply only to developable lots and not to roads and other lots or
parcels of land not intended for vertical development.
