Transfer your development rights?

How they do it.

Transfer your development rights?

Postby Admin » Mon Jan 18, 2010 8:52 pm

Transferable development rights (TDR) allow landowners to transfer the right to develop one parcel of land to a different parcel of land.

A landowner sells development rights and the land is restricted with a permanent conservation easement.  A landowner in other locations buys development rights to build at a higher density then normally permitted.

The concept has been around for a long time but has not worked well for the most part.

The paper titled THE TDR SIREN SONG goes into detail.
