Abstract: Land use control, and consequently the process of land development, have undergone major modifications within the last few years. Conventional land use controls, such as zoning by-laws and subdivision regulations, have been reformed for various "observable" and "non-observable" reasons to include such devices as comprehensive zoning, planned unit developments and land use contracts. As a result, land developers have had to adjust their operational responsibilities, In this paper, we a re primarily concerned with the possible reasons for the recent shifts evident within contemporary land use legislation; and the subsequential reactions by land developers. A review of the literature concerned with contemporary land use controls and their impacts will be utilized. Traditional land economic theory will supplement these observations. It is hoped that this study will encourage further examination of the land development environment observed in this present impirical analysis. The main objectives might hopefully be to stimulate thought, provoke discussion and encourage further work in the field.
