To speed up short and medium-term housing supply, the Development Bureau (DEVB) has launched since May 2020 the Land Sharing Pilot Scheme (LSPS) which helps unleash or enhance the development potentials of private lots currently constrained by inadequate infrastructure or GIC facilities.


Where upgrade or provision of infrastructure or GIC facilities is necessary to support a higher development density of a private lot, the Government will, upon acceptance of an application under LSPS, facilitate the applicant to construct such facilities with costs deductible from the payment of land premium for the relevant lease modification/land exchange.  In return, the applicant shall share by contributing to the Government at least 70% of the additional domestic gross floor area gained, in the form of formed land on which the Government will construct public housing or Starter Homes.  Through streamlining the required statutory procedures and providing one-stop facilitation and advisory services by the Land Sharing Office in processing LSPS applications as well as by tapping the market force in planning and construction, LSPS will contribute additional housing supply to both the private and public sectors under a compressed development programme.


Private lots with consolidated ownership, not falling within geographical limit including those either environmentally sensitive or intended for public purposes, are eligible under LSPS.  Subject to a maximum of 150 hectares to be accepted, applications received before 6 May 2023 will be processed.


This presentation introduces the framework of LSPS, with focus on aspects relevant professionals should note in advising their prospective clients in joining LSPS as well as preparing and facilitating acceptance of applications.
