What is the Land Development Code? 

The City of Stuart’s Land Development Code (LDC) contains regulations for:

  • How land may be used and may not be used;
  • How much can be built (e.g., how tall the buildings can be, how many units can be put on each acre, how much of the lot they can cover, how much parking and landscaping must be provided);
  • What resources have to be protected and how;
  • How projects should be designed; and
  • How approvals are granted for new development, expansions of existing buildings, or redevelopment.
