The Hong Kong Planning Standards and Guidelines is a government
document of planning criteria and guidelines for determining the quantity,
scale, location and site requirements of various land uses and facilities.
It applies to planning studies and the preparation or revision of town
plans. The document is under constant review to take account of changes
in government policies, demographic characteristics and social and economic
trends. During the year, planning standards and guidelines for residential
densities, industry, parking provisions and urban design were formulated,
updated or being revised.
The document is available for sale to the public on
a chapter-by-chapter basis and uploaded to the Planning Department's website
to promote public awareness of its content and to facilitate its application
by non-governmental bodies.
