Quezon City’s Land Use Plan Approved Print
Disaster risk recognition and mitigation are incorporated in our Quezon City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) 2011 to 2025 which was finally approved by the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board or HLURB last September 14, 2017, after having gone through extensive evaluations and deliberations.

The CLUP is the long-term framework plan that defines the desired pattern of growth of the city.  The revised CLUP was first adopted through Ordinance No. SP-2069, s. 2011, in an effort to update zoning laws to consider the significant transformations that have been taking place in terms of the patterns, intensity and direction of development.  

The enactment of Republic Act 9729, or the Climate Change Adaptation Act, and Republic Act No. 10121, or the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Act, required technical revisions in the original CLUP, as it went through the technical evaluations of the HLURB and  the Metro Manila Development Authority.  The amendments were institutionalized through the implementing ordinances, Ordinance No. SP-2488, s. 2016 and the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance of 2016.

The approval paves the way for putting in motion the city’s updated Zoning Ordinance for all locational clearance applications.

The CLUP provides for a multi-growth strategy for Quezon City.  The CLUP delineates the following growth and non-growth areas:
•    CBD-Knowledge district will be a super district, and is expected to be a high-intensity development that shall be the exemplar of the city government’s green building initiatives.
•    Novaliches-Lagro is a growth center, with Lagro as an emerging market center not only for northern Quezon City but also for the northern part of Caloocan and San Jose del Monte cities, as well as the southern municipalities of Bulacan;
•    Balintawak, with Muñoz, which has advantages as an agricultural food processing hub and transport terminal center;
•    La Mesa Dam Watershed Forest Park is not a growth area, for it must be conserved and protected;
•    NGC II Growth Center is limited to the eastern side of Commonwealth Avenue because the western side is predominantly residential;
•    Payatas is not a growth center, but a special development zone, with no intensive permanent developments allowed around the landfill area;
•    The Eastwood Cyberpark is fully built up; thus, future developments in the southern portion of barangay Bagumbayan will be limited to mixed-use residential projects for services catering to local residents; scroll back to top
