Larger Parcel

A term used in eminent domain proceedings, signifying that the parcel taken is not a complete parcel but part of a "larger parcel"; the owner, therefore, is entitled to damages from the severance as well as the value of the parcel taken. Unity of ownership use, and contiguity must be present, although federal courts and some states do not require contiguity where there is a strong unity of use.
