8. Guidance on urban design:
a) General urban design framework
– Development axes: control of floor, constructional density, set-back and form of works design for the main urban development axis in the North-South direction from Cau Trang to An Thoi; the axis along the coast and 02 urban axes in the direction of the sea at Bai Truong;
– Controlled areas: control of constructional density, coefficient of land use, percentage of green trees, open space, public services works; percentage of traffic in Cua Can, Duong Dong and An Thoi urban areas and Bai Truong complex area.
– System of highlighting works:
On the controlled axes and areas, there are highlighted works including the public services works, administrative works, luxury hotels and commercial works at Bai Thom area, Cua Can, An Thoi and Duong Dong urban areas, Bai Truong complex. There are also highlights at the top of Chua, Vung Bau, Ong Quoi, Ong Phung, Ong Dieu, Dien Tien, Ra Da mountains, Ganh Dau and Mong Tay capes.
– System of forest, landscape park, water space and open space:
Conservation of special-use forest and protection forest area; landscape of open space at typical tourism areas; landscape along coast: beaches and scenic spots.
Control of landscape of theme parks: science, entertainment, memorial park. For other open spaces: maintaining the biodiversity, rivers, canals and lakes. Control of urban design of areas of center square in urban areas;
b) Organization of design space and landscape
– Duong Dong urban area: the commercial-office axis overlooking the sea is the main urban axis; the starting point is the administrative-political center and Asean square, the end point is Marina port. The coastal North-South axis is to create the landscape architecture area of urban area center with high-rise works; combination with open space system is Duong Dong rivers and lakes and natural landscape as Dien Tien and Khu Tuong mountains;
– Cua Can urban area is a natural gateway between the development center area in the Northern island and is the intersection of the main traffic axis, forming clusters of residential area close to nature. Here, there are symbolic highlighting works of urban area such as scientific research center, hotel, high-rise office building. The scientific theme park combined with Cua Can lake creates unique landscape;
– An Thoi urban area: forming sunset viewing points; urban areas developing in the manner of compact, mixture and harmony between the new development area and the old one. The highlights are the high-rise works and symbolic lighthouse;
– Bai Truong tourism complex is a typical landscape architecture space of tourism of the island city. The highlighting works are located along the coastal axis around the island and the axes looking over the sea with high-rise works;
– Handicraft villages in service of tourism: maintaining villages and hamlets is for maintaining the natural current status of value of island identity. The infrastructure is upgraded to maintain the scale of small village with compact structure. New development is mixed at appropriate place within the existing area of village;
Control and maintenance of low-rise housing, coefficient of land use < 01 time; maximum height of 03 storeys. The population density at the existing village and hamlet areas and mixed development areas is about 67 people/ha.
– Urbanized rural areas: Newly-developed rural areas need to retain the characteristics of unique natural landscape by the vast arrays of open space, embellished with clusters of garden house. The low density between the vast arrays of open space; coefficient of land use <1 time; maximum height of 03 storeys. The population density in rural development areas is about 20 people / ha.
– Combined resort area: depending on each specific location to locate one or a lot of hotels and other forms of accommodation such as villas, apartments or apartment for rent and resort services area with retail shops, restaurants and diverse entertainment areas such as water sports center or golf course. The complex resort areas are developed with low density with open space and natural landscape as a prevailing element. The constructional works are the low-rise buidings and the hotels must not exceed 08 storeys;
– Eco-tourism areas with all items for stay, restaurants, entertainment works and other utilities. The land area, constructional height and layout of works depend on the location and area landscape.
– Eco-hotels: are located on small and remote ground areas and linked on the principle to the surrounding natural space to minimize negative effect to the surrounding environment.
– Distributing and dispatching center: location of highlighting works is around new airport and area within An Thoi urban area.

For urban areas and existing construction areas, only conducting the partial leveling to prevent flooding when renovating and embellishing the urban areas and try to keep intact the existing ground surface, finish the cover and take measures to protect the grounf foundation such as river and stream embankment and slope reinforcement.
For the new construction area, leveling is in accordance with the controlled high level and advantage of natural topography. The area with natural topography > 3.0 m shall be leveled mainly based on the topography, avoiding large earthwork and limiting the break of natural cover. The area with the natural topography lower than < 3.0 m should be leveled up to the controlled high level to prevent flooding.
In low-lying areas, digging lakes to be the reservoirs and create landscape.
– Rainwater drainage:
