   (b)   Where this Zoning Code is more restrictive as to the use of buildings or land, or limits the height or bulk of buildings, or requires larger areas and yards than are required by other deed or plat restrictions, codes, laws, ordinances, rules, or regulations, this Zoning Code shall govern; and conversely, other regulations shall govern where they are more restrictive in nature than this Zoning Code.
   (c)   This Zoning Code shall not be construed as removing or rendering inoperative, any deed or land restriction formerly established by restrictive covenants that run with land easements, or other agreements between parties.
