Land parcel

Land measurement for planning and development purposes, Guidance Note, Global 1st edition, Published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in May 2021, states: ‘A land parcel is a unique, well-defined unit of land. These units are defined by the formal or informal boundaries marking the extent of lands held for exclusive use by individuals and specific groups of individuals (e.g. families, corporations and communal groups). Each parcel may be given a unique code or parcel identifier. Examples of these codes include addresses, coordinates, and title or lot numbers shown on a survey plan or map. They can be composed of land within a single land title or a composite of several.’
