Regional Housing Needs Assessment
Maps and Data
During this project we will be posting maps and data resources that you can use to learn more about housing in the Region.
Southwest NH Zoning Districts & Housing Regulations
This interactive map, created by SWRPC, shows a regional picture of local zoning districts and housing regulations across Southwest New Hampshire. Zoning districts are ordinances that are established and enforced by municipalities. They establish parameters for the kinds of land use and development that is allowed within defined areas called “zones”.
On this map, primary permitted land uses are shown for each zone for all Towns across the Region. Explore this map to better understand what types of housing projects and other development is permitted under existing regulations.
