Enter the total lot area (acres) and the public area (acres) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Net Lot Area. 

Net Lot Area Formula



  • NLA is the Net Lot Area (acres)
  • TLA is the total lot area (acres)
  • PA is the public area (acres)

To calculate the Net Lot Area, subtract the public area from the total lot area.

How to Calculate Net Lot Area?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Net Lot Area.

  1. First, determine the total lot area (acres). 
  2. Next, determine the public area (acres). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = NLA = TLA – PA.
  4. Finally, calculate the Net Lot Area.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.
