The Land Utilisation Ordinance classifies types of building use.
It distinguises two categories:
First, land-use areas for general types of use:
- housing land
- mixed building land
- industrial and commercial land
- special building land
This rough classification is to be used only in the preparatory land-use plan.
Second, land-use areas for specific types of building use:
- small holding areas
- purely residential areas
- general residential areas
- special residential areas
- village areas
- mixed areas
- core areas
- commercial areas
- industrial areas
- special areas.
These specific land-use areas can be designated in both the preparatory and the binding land-use plan and are finergrained and more detailed categories.
The Land Utilisation Ordinance defines all the above development areas and provides details on what building projects and facilities are permitted.
