Planned Unit Development (PUD)

Definitions of Planned Unit Development (PUD)

  • A special type of subdivision that doesn't have to comply with all standard zoning and subdivision regulations. For example, non-residential and residential buildings may be combined in the overall plan. Since PUD developers don't have to follow setback and lot size rules, buildings may also be closer together, creating large open spaces for public use and enjoyment. In most states, detailed plans must be submitted to a planning or zoning commission to get permission to build a PUD.
  • A coordinated, real estate development where common areas are shared and maintained by an owner's association or other entity.
