A total of about 37.29 hectares of land are zoned "Residential (Group C)" primarily for low-rise, low-density residential developments while a total of about 6.54 hectares of land are zoned "Residential (Group D)" primarily to improve and upgrade the existing temporary structures within the rural area.
A total of 43.9 hectares of land are zoned "Village Type Development" and primarily intended for development of Small Houses by indigenous villagers.
To cater for local and district needs, a total of about 8.56 hectares of land are zoned "Government, Institution or Community", and about 2.43 hectares of land are zoned "Open Space".
A total of about 37.35 hectares of land are zoned "Recreation" for recreational developments for the use of the general public.
