A developer's plans to redevelop a building should not be approved until it has gained complete ownership, residents and district councillors said yesterday. That was one recommendation made to the Planning Department - which is gauging public opinion on capping the height of buildings in Mid-Levels west - at a public meeting yesterday. Currently, developers can submit such plans while still in the process of acquiring a building.
