13.21.2 Site Coverage

The purpose of site coverage control is to prevent over-development, to avoid overshadowing and to protect rights to light of adjoining properties.  The maximum normal site coverage for uses in all areas is 65%.  In urban areas, site coverage may be allowed to increase up to 85% or up to the existing site coverage.  In some cases, a higher percentage may be allowed, subject to the proper planning and sustainable development of the site.​​​​​​​

Site coverage = Ground floor area divided by gross site area.
