Flexible design standards can allow for the conservation of a site’s natural areas and ecological function. Conservation design developments advocate preserving a site’s most distinguishing natural features and integrating them into the community of the new development. Open space should be consolidated to have the greatest recreational, aesthetic, and environmental benefit.

Smaller lot sizes allow the same densities as a traditional development, with more open space dedicated as a community amenity. Flexible lot design allows less roads and stormwater infrastructure to be built, reducing imperviousness and infrastructure costs.
