The following is information about neighborhoods that are currently in the process to develop Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) regulations.
What is a Neighborhood Conservation District?
Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) Zoning Overlay is a set of land use regulations that is applied to a specific neighborhood as a zoning overlay.
The designation is used by the Chapel Hill Town Council to protect distinctive neighborhood characteristics and is useful in areas that contribute significantly to the overall character and identity of the Town, but may lack sufficient historical, architectural or cultural significance at the present time to be designated as a Historic District.
