‘LAND MEASUREMENT’ New guidance on the measurement of land for development projects such as new housing and commercial development have been published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, which defi nes common measurements used across the built environment and associated metrics such as density.

The guidance is now available and will be used by planners, surveyors, developers, architects, government and legal administrators around the world.

Titled ‘Measurement of Land for Planning and Development Purposes’, it provides clear defi nitions for measurements widely used in the property and built environment sectors, advocating consistency worldwide. Five core defi nitions have now been formalised by RICS to assist with the global measurement of land. They are:

Land Ownership Area (LOA): an area of land, measured on a horizontal plane, which is held in a single legal interest or title by one or more legal owners, which may be the subject of a proposed or actual sale, letting or other disposal, valuation or compulsory purchase, and which may comprise all or part of that single legal interest or title.

Site Area (SA): the total land area on which development authorisation is sought, measured on a horizontal plane.

Net Development Area (NDA): the extent of the Site Area upon which one or more buildings or other operations and their ancillary space can be built, measured on a horizontal plane.

Plot Ratio (PR): the ratio of total development fl oor area to SA. Development fl oor area may be measured as gross external area (GEA) or gross internal area (GIA) but whichever is used or modifi cations of them should be clearly stated. Floor Area Ratio (FAR) and Floorspace

Ratio (FSR) are similar terms, used interchangeably in some jurisdictions to reference the same point. For consistency, PR should be used wherever possible. Where jurisdictional requirements are for the use of either FAR or FSR, PR should be reported as well.

Site Coverage (SC): the ratio of ground fl oor area (measured in accordance with GEA) to SA, expressed as a percentage.

A key difference with the new guidelines is that calculations of density should now always be expressed in terms of Gross Density (based on SA), rather than on a Net basis, with Net Density providing an additional and complementary metric for understanding the intensity of development of a site. professional-standards/ sector-standards/land/land- measurement-for-planning-and- development-purposes-global- guidance-note-1st-edition/


Visitors to the TYDE website will be able to create, send or download a quote request with the new Quote Builder function. Website visitors will also be able to download and print off their quote list should they wish to take it to a local stockist.

If a visitor to the website needs help locating a TYDE stockist then they can simply enter their postcode and let the website do the rest. Keeping the customer at the heart of their activities, it’s what TYDE does best.

Paul Weddle the TYDE Business Unit Director said: “After many months of hard work and dedication from our team, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new website. Our primary goal was to create a valuable, user-friendly and responsive resource for our customers. Based on feedback, we’ve focused on making it easy to locate product information and simplify the ordering process.”
