Self Declaration Scheme

 

The self-declaration (SD) scheme serves to facilitate application to NParks at the DC, BP and CSC stages. In making application to NParks via this scheme, proposed works are checked and declared by QP to be in full compliance with NParks’ requirements as stipulated in prevailing regulations and guidelines. With this, the time required for applications to be cleared by NParks can be reduced.

 

How to qualify? 

The proposed development must meet the eligibility conditions for the particular stage which the QP wish to apply under the SD scheme. Please refer to subsequent table for more details on the eligibility conditions.
