Substantially Developed Land Law and Legal Definition

Substantially developed land refers to lands within a district that is currently used for commercial, industrial, institutional, or governmental use, or for residential use consistent with or exceeding the densities allowable under the underlying zoning, and which does not qualify as underutilized land. Any land located within a Historic District shall be presumed to be Substantially Developed, unless the Municipality can show that all or a portion of such land qualifies as Developable Land.
