Some regulations and policies are not part of the Ann Arbor City Code, but have been approved separately by City Planning Commission and/or City Council. 

Chapter 57, Subdivision and Land Use Control, outlines the types of development that require site plan approval. If approval is necessary, the Land Development Regulations identify the required information for area plans, site plans, plats, and land divisions.
