Minimum Parcel Size

Learn about factors that determine the minimum size for lots created through new land divisions in each land use category. Procedures and additional standards for dividing land are in Title 21. By refining the parcel size ranges set in the Land Use Element for each land use category, these standards determine site specific minimum parcel sizes for new parcels that are consistent with the General Plan.

The number of dwelling units that may be established on a site that complies with Inland Area Minimum Site Area (Title 22) and Coastal Zone Minimum Site Area (Title 23), is based upon the land use category (i.e. Zoning) applied to the site by the Land Use Element.
