Development rights are transferred to the receiving site. Buying these rights generally allows the owner of the receiving parcel to build at a higher density than ordinarily permitted by the base zoning.
Pierce County has a list of TDR receiving sites (in unincorporated Pierce County) resulting from approved Comprehensive Plan Amendment(s). If you would like specific information about these receiving sites, or want to contact a receiving site landowner(s), please use our TDR Contact Request Form.
