Property zoning is set out in the applicable Town Planning Scheme, which determines such aspects as possible land use, floor area, coverage, building lines, parking provisions etc.

There are presently different Town Planning Schemes for different areas of the City of Johannesburg. It is important to establish which scheme applies to which area, as the specific requirements of the schemes differ.
