Transfer of Development Rights

Transfer of Development Rights programs exist in many Lee County communities to allow for responsible growth and development in our region

Lee County’s Transfer of Development Rights program includes regulations and incentives for property owners in designated areas to transport development rights to another property through transfer or sale. Land owners may sell development rights and still retain the title to the land and the right to use the land on a limited basis.

Lee County’s TDR areas include:

  • Greater Pine Island TDR program
  • Wetlands TDR program
  • Southeast Lee County TDR program
