planned unit development (PUD) -- a type of residential, commercial, or industrial land development that provides more planning flexibility than traditional zoning and lot layout. Buildings are often clustered on smaller lots, permitting the preservation of natural features in common areas or open park-like areas. The development maintains the same or slightly greater density than is permitted by conventional zoning methods. Individual properties are owned in fee with the common areas owned jointly or deeded to the local government.
