Type of strata landed housing developments Formula to calculate maximum number of DUs allowed
35% of site area Y Where Y = Typical footprint for a Good Class Bungalow
Mixed strata landed housing developments comprising more than one housing form (e.g. a mix of terrace, semi-detached and detached housing units) outside GCBAs
(B x Y) + (SD x Y) + (T x Y) ≤ 40% of site area
Where B = SD = T = Y = number of detached housing units number of semi-detached housing units number of terrace housing units Typical footprint for the relevant conventional landed housing form
4. The new formulae will improve the compatibility of strata landed housing developments with the environment of landed housing estates. It also addresses feedback from residents in landed housing estates that strata landed housing developments could inject a disproportionately large number of DUs, causing additional traffic and parking problems along the local estate roads and creating a more congested living environment.
Communal Open Space (COS) Requirement with Minimum On-Ground Greenery Control
5. To safeguard more space for communal facilities and greenery within strata landed housing developments, we will raise the minimum Communal Open Space (COS) requirement from 30% to 45%. Of the 45%, at least 25% must be set aside for on-ground greenery. This will enhance the living environment within strata landed housing developments, as well as the landed housing estate as a whole. This also complements
push for more greenery in our urban environment through the LUSH 2.0 Programme announced on 12 June 2014.
