URA revises strata housing developments

The Urban Redevelopment Authority, or URA, has revised the guidelines for strata landed housing developments to improve their compatibility with the environment of landed housing estates. 

Under the revised guidelines, there is a new set of blueprint to determine the maximum number of houses allowed in various types of strata landed housing developments. 

It will generally result in fewer strata landed units compared to the previous one. 

The URA says the government decided to change the guidelines after residents in landed housing estates said existing strata landed housing rules may inject a disproportionately large number of units, causing more traffic and parking problems. 

The revised guidelines will be effective from tomorrow.
