• Additional incentives for plots in subdivision areas will be introduced to the ordinances.

• Relaxed rules for combining two plots have also been revealed.

• Subdivided plots spanning 10 marlas to 1 Kanal will be required to leave 30 feet of land on the front, 7 feet on the back, and 5 feet on both sides, which is a reduction from the previous requirement of 13 feet. The covered area of plots reduced in size by sub-divisions will be expanded as a result of the adjustments.
