Details :

To speed up short and medium-term housing supply, the DEVB in May 2020 launched the Land Sharing Pilot Scheme (LSPS) which aims at tapping the market force in planning and construction to release the development potential of private lots with consolidated ownership but not falling within geographical limit including those either environmentally sensitive or intended for public purposes.

 

Development potentials of private lots where currently constrained by inadequate infrastructure facilities could be unleashed or enhanced by joining the LSPS.  The Government will, upon acceptance of application, facilitate the applicant to upgrade/ provide infrastructure facilities.  Construction and related costs of these infrastructure and GIC facilities, after vetting and acceptance by Government will be deducted from the land premium for the proposed lease modification/land exchange.  In return, the successful LSPS applicants will be required to share at least 70% of the additional domestic gross floor area gained with the Government in the form of formed land for development of public housing or Starter Homes.

 

Subject to a maximum limit of 150 hectares to be accepted under the LSPS, applications received before 5 May 2023 will be processed.

 

This presentation will, apart from introducing the key features of the LSPS, also focus on points relevant professionals should note in advising their prospective clients to join the LSPS, in preparing applications and in facilitating acceptance of applications.
