19-0305 Definition of Areas of Land Developed
For purposes of the LCC I-01 Limits to Growth permission for Greenfield development in developing countries, the land defined as developed includes more than just buildings. Areas to be converted by the project primarily for human use, such as infrastructure to support and access buildings, walkways, trails, play fields, planted gardens, outdoor gathering spaces, urban agriculture, and building parcels (buildings, setbacks to the building, landscaping, etc) are considered developed. Areas to be set aside for permanent conservation "(through a reputable land trust)", or "sensitive ecological habitats", or areas of restoration and conservation (that are not subject to alteration for access or use by people eg wetland buffer restoration or steep-slope restoration) can be excluded from the area considered as Community development for the purposes of conservation calculations for I-01 Limits to Growth. The Community must make a case for exclusions with a labeled diagram and narrative.
