2. Conformity wlth the Zoning Ordinance or Land Use Plan of the


City/Municipality

Generally,housingprojectsshouldconformwith the zoningordinanceof the


city/municipalitywhere they are locatedthus shall be in suitable sites for
housing. However,wherethere is no zoningordinanceor land use plan,the
predominantland use principleand site suitabilityfactorscited hereinshall be
used in determiningsuitabilityof a projectto a site.

Furthermore,if the prcject is undoubtedlysupportiveof other land uses and


activities(e.9.,housingfor industrialworkers)said prcjectshallbe allowed.

3. PhysicalSuitability

A potential site must have characteristicsassuring healthful, safe and


environmentallysound community life. lt shall be stable enough to
accommodatefoundationload without excessivesite works. Criticalareas
(e.9.,areassubjectto flooding,landslidesand stress)mustbe avoided.

4. Accessibllity

The site must be sewed by a road that is readily accessibleto public


transoortationlines. Said access road shall conform to the standardsset
herein of these Rules to ac@mmodateexpecteddemand caused by the
development of the area.In no caseshalla subdivisionprojectbe apprcved
without necessary access road/right-of-way constructed either by the
developeror the LocalGovemment Unit.

B. PlanningConsiderations

1. AreaPlanning

to i minimum but also the prcvisionfor possiblefuture improvement or
expansion,as in the prescriptionof lot sizes, right-of-wayof roads, open
