Govt acts to ensure land supply for elderly homes, paper says

Land for the construction of elderly homes should be included in government plans on ensuring adequate land supply in accordance with the guidelines issued by the State Council last year, the Oriental Morning Post reported Sunday, citing a statement issued by the Ministry of Land and Resources on its website. The ministry also encourages operators of elderly homes to build such facilities on land in stock, while land used to build elderly homes for profit should be supplied through lease or sale. According to the guidelines, real estate developers are strictly prohibited from changing the purpose of use and floor area ratio of land originally intended for elderly homes, the report said.
