Planning & zoning regulations

Bonaire adopted a planning and zoning ordinance in 1994 and recently adopted a development plan with zoning rules against undesirable building developments on Bonaire.

The mandatory Planning and Zoning Regulations can infringe on the rights of the owners of real estate property. However, under certain circumstances, interested parties who, as a result of local zoning plans, suffer plan-related damages, are entitled to compensation from the government.
