Horizontal Property Regime (HPR)
Definition of term
A Horizontal Property Regime, or HPR, is a type of zoning policy that allows for two houses to be built on land that was formally only zoned for just one house. The end result is, that instead of being short and wide the houses are constructed to be tall and skinny. This is a newer type of construction/building strategy. These homes are most commonly found in up-and-coming areas where land is at a premium.
