DSSOPT solicits public opinion on land use


The Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau (DSSOPT) commenced the gathering of opinions yesterday on 10 retrieved lands designated for other usage, as posted on the official Urban Planning Information website.
The public consultation period will last until May 25 this year, with opinions collected on three long-term land concessions and seven private plots of land.
The concession plot located near Avenida Dr. Sun Yat Sen on Taipa Island is the largest of the ten, occupying 669 square metres. According to the proposal, it is suggested the land be used for the construction of a hotel of a maximum height of 90 metres.
The remaining nine plots are earmarked for non-industrial usage.
The second largest plot, which is privately owned, is situated near Rua do Almirante Sérgio.
Occupying 433 square metres, the plot is separated into three portions, according to the proposal. It is also located within the protected heritage district.
With the implementation of the Urban Planning Law on March 1 2014, all land plots except those to be used for public infrastructure are subject to public opinions to be deliberated upon by the Urban Planning Committee.
