Paper zoning

Creation of a zone in an LUB for which there is no actual land so designated within the municipality: see Dartmouth (City) v Portland Landing Beverage Room Ltd (1989), 90 NSR (2d) 91 (SCTD); unmapped district with detailed and conditional use requirements — in effect, the zone floats over the municipality until a developer seeks to locate it: see Joseph William Singer, Introduction to Property (Gaithersburg, MD: Aspen Law & Business, 2001).
