 (Refer to Statement of Intent for further guidance)


Notes:

1.

Provision referring to gross floor area (GFA) includes part thereof of the specified m2 GFA.

2.

In preparation of planning layouts for industrial areas, provision should be made for public parking areas to cater for transit vehicles which cannot be accommodated within individual lots.

3.

The following design standards apply:

i)

For private cars: Turning circle - 7.5m outer radius. 

ii)

For goods vehicles: turning circle - 11.5m outer radius.

4.

Goods vehicle provision is divided into 65 % LGV and 35 % HGV.

5.

The space provided for loading/unloading is required to abut a goods handling platform or area which must be provided and so laid out that the goods loading/unloading from/to such platform or area may be transported within the lot to all parts of the building both horizontally and vertically.

6.

The goods handling platform or area must give access to the building in accordance with the Code of Practice for Provision of Means of Escape in Case of Fire and allied requirements made under the Buildings Ordinance. 

7.

All parking and loading/unloading bays shall be laid out in such a way to avoid the need for vehicles to reverse onto roads abutting the lot.

8.

The handling of all goods must be through designated goods entrances, goods lifts lobbies and goods lifts that are segregated from those for passengers.

9.

Points of access should not interrupt the main shopping frontage.

10.

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.

11.

The provision of container vehicle loading/unloading bay on sites with dimensions less than 45m x 40m should be considered on a case-by-case basis and in consultation with the Transport Department.
