Abstract:   (574 Views)
Zoning has always been one of the basic tools of land use control available. Zoning is the regulation and restriction of land uses according to a predetermined plan. This paper will present a look at conventional zoning, its origins, the evolution of the zoning, and the scope of zoning types. Regardless of the varieties, most zoning codes can be classified into at least one of the following broad categories: Euclidean zoning, Performance/Impact zoning, Incentive zoning, Form-based zoning and Hybrid Zoning. In this article, a descriptive-analytical method is used to review the existing documents and extract the materials in order to introduce the approach of FBC, its advantages and disadvantages. So, after defining each concept, the Critiques of Euclidean Zoning will be explained and then a new approach of zoning named Form-based Codes will be introduced to develop a better way of zoning in order to select homogenous areas of urban and rural terrain to adopt determined and certain rules of planning.
