Remarks

2.

Office

-

For the first 15 000m2 GFA:

 

1 car space per 150-200m2 GFA.

-

Above 15 000m2 GFA:

 

1 car space per 200-300m2 GFA.

 

-

For office blocks with car lifts, adequate queuing spaces should be provided to avoid tailing back onto public roads.

-

Flexibility should be applied to permit a reduction of standards or nil provision for office blocks located very close to high capacity public transport systems, or for cases with severe site constraints.

-

1 loading/unloading bay for goods vehicles for every 2 000 to 3 000m2 or part thereof, GFA.

-

For sites of at least 5 000m2 net site area, 1 picking up/ setting down lay-by for taxis and private cars for every 20 000m2, or part thereof, GFA.

-

Point of access should not interrupt any main shopping frontage.

-

The manoeuvring of goods vehicles should be within the curtilages of the site; generally no reversing movement into/from a public road will be permitted.

3.

Retail Markets

-

Generally nil.

 

-

Marketing is still mainly by pedestrians from the locality, making frequent trips for small purchases. However parking provision in specific locations is not precluded.

-

1 medium/heavy goods vehicle bay per 20-30 large stalls, 1 medium/heavy goods vehicle bay per 40-60 small stalls. (Subject to a minimum provision of 2 medium/heavy goods vehicle bays.)

-

1 loading/unloading bay, same dimensions as those for a medium/heavy goods vehicle, for each refuse collection point.

-

In preparation of development plans, some lay-bys for taxis and private cars should be incorporated in the vicinity of markets.

-

The definitions of stall sizes will be according to relevant Tables in Chapter 6 of HKPSG.

-

The manoeuvring of goods vehicles should be within the curtilages of the site; generally no reversing movement into/from a public road will be permitted.

-

Dry goods are generally still delivered at irregular intervals by bicycles or small vans.

-

To facilitate loading/unloading in the bulk purchasing of retail goods.


(Refer to Statement of Intent and General Notes for Section 3 for further guidance)

Notes:

1.

The provisions relating to retail markets apply to free standing retail markets and not those built as part of retail centres. Parking and loading/unloading bay provision for markets which are integrated in location and design with the retail centres should still be determined as part of the general retail requirement (see Type 1 of this Section) and be calculated according to the overall floor space of the retail centre, including any market area.

2.

Flexibility in application of the standards is allowed in case of severe site constraints.
