Setback Lines:

Lines on a plot drawing that delineate how close to the edges of the property a structure may be built. A structure may not extend past the setback lines, thus may be no closer to the perimeter of the property than the setback lines. Setback lines are defined in building codes, deed restrictions, and zoning regulations.
