1

The 100% site coverage should be restricted to the podium height not exceeding 15m above ground level under the Building (Planning) Regulations. For tower blocks above podium, the permitted percentage site coverage should not exceed that specified in the First Schedule of the Building (Planning) Regulations.

 

2

Minimum site coverage is stipulated for Industrial Estates to prevent unnecessary acquirement of land due to its comparatively low land price.

 

3

The recommended lot sizes for Science Park is for guidance only and smaller lot size is allowed.
