I don’t know how a lawyer would say these things. Laymen typically use short simplified language.
- “What is the zoning designation for this building?”
If you are asking what I think you are, then this is correct. On official zoning maps, the designations are shortened to 1-4 characters so they fit on the map. For example: R for residential, O for office, B for business, etc. There are also subtypes such as: R1 for single family housing, R2 for two family housing, R3 or R4 for apartments, etc.
- “Does the zoning for this property permit the use of food establishment”
This is OK but too wordy for common language.
Is this property zoned for restaurants?
- “What are the permitted uses of this propery/land”
This is OK.
“What uses are permitted for this property?” might be better.
Or you could simply ask, “What’s the zoning here?” or “How is this zoned?”.
- “Does the zoning permit the land/property to be used for school?”
This could be simplified to:
Is this zoned for a school.
I also don’t think there is actually a zoning designation for public schools. I know for sure there isn’t where I live. The government just decides to build a school somewhere which is like giving themselves permission regardless of the previous zoning. Where I live private schools are businesses, so are built in areas zoned for business.
- “Is the property zoned for food establishment usage?”
Same answer as #1.
I agree with @NearlyNapping with one possible exception for #3.
While “permitted” could mean allowed, it could also mean received a specific authorization for the use. That is, they received a permit from the authority.
