  Community/Sports Facilities Scheme (CSFS);  
  In 2003, URA introduced the Community/Sports Facilities Scheme (CSFS) for the integration of community facilities in commercial developments. The scheme was set up to facilitate the co-location of compatible community uses with commercial uses for mutual benefit. The proposed use of CSFS is intended for public or community use and should not be profit driven.

Under the latest revised scheme, the predominant use of the CSFS space is for community outreach. CSFS space are primarily in commercial retail developments (e.g.: shopping centres) which are highly accessible. Since the scheme was introduced in 2003, many community providers, such as elder care services, child care services, sports facilities, community clubs and community libraries have benefitted from the scheme.

The details of the revised scheme can be found at URA.
