Planned Unit Development

Description: Planned Unit Development (PUD) is a tool municipalities use to encourage or require flexibility, creativity, and innovation in the planning and design of development to achieve a variety of objectives. Under the PUD concept, a municipality can provide for planned development that incorporates a variety of uses, including a mix of housing types, such as garden apartments, townhouses, and single-family homes, as well as other uses that might not otherwise be allowed under zoning. PUDs can also be used to encourage or require clustered development and are increasingly used in more rural settings to protect farmland and open space. This chapter of the Implementation Manual provides an overview of how Vermont municipalities can use PUD provisions to achieve their land use planning and development goals.
