Limited Development
"If you own land and would like to conserve it, but need to receive some income, too, limited development...may offer you the opportunity to do both. 

Simply put, limited development means subdividing off fewer lots for housing than local zoning codes would permit. This allows the landowner to realize the financial gain of developing some of the land while protecting most of it.

In fact, the landowner may be able to sell the resulting home lots for a higher price than if he or she had built at the maximum number of units permitted by local zoning." From the Natural Lands Trust
