Setbacks are the distance between the property lines and the immediate structure on the property. The setbacks could be a range from zero to X feet or could be an average of the adjacent buildings setback.
There are 3 setbacks:
Every front setback and rear yard extend along a lot line the full width of the lot.
Every side yard extends along a lot line from the front setback or the front lot line to the rear yard.
The required minimum depth or width of any yard or setback is measured generally at right angles to the lot line.
Some jurisdictions may allow to have the depth of the setback based on the average between adjacent buildings' setbacks.
