Within the limits of the Global Parking Standards, Transport Department will establish district-based parking standards for each district according to the prevailing demand/supply conditions in respective districts. The district-based parking standards are subject to periodical review.

Subsidised Housing

A 15% discount should be applied to the provision of residential car parking spaces where over 50% of the site area of the development fall within a 500m radius of rail stations. The 500m-radius catchment area of a rail station should be drawn from the centre of the station irrespective of the configuration and layout of the station.

(3)

"One person/two persons" flats shall be excluded from the calculation of the overall parking provision of both car parking spaces and LGV spaces.

A 25% discount should be applied to the provision of residential car parking spaces where over 50% of the site area of the development fall within a 500m radius of rail stations. The 500m-radius catchment area of a rail station should be drawn from the centre of the station irrespective of the configuration and layout of the station.

(5)

The standard for the developments of flat size greater than 160m2 is a minimum requirement. Request for provision beyond the standard will be considered by Transport Department on a case-by-case basis.

(6)

Visitor car parking for private residential developments with more than 75 units per block should include 1-5 visitor spaces per block in addition to the recommendations, or as determined by the Authority. For other private residential developments, the visitor car parking provision will be advised by Transport Department on a case-by-case basis.
