6 Outer Wall Setback (Building Standards Act: Article 54)
In the 1st and 2nd class low-rise residential areas, the distance from the exterior wall of the building to the property line ("exterior wall setback distance") may be set at 1.5m or 1m by city planning.
7 Daylight Regulations (Building Standards Act: Article 56-2)
(1) Buildings located in areas designated by local government ordinances shall not create shaded areas within a certain distance from the property line for more than a specified period of time (2 to 5 hours) between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on the winter solstice.
(2) The shaded area is calculated at the height specified by the local government (1.5m, 4m, or 6.5m).
(3) Restricted buildings are those exceeding 7 m in eaves height or 3 or more stories above ground in the 1st and 2nd low-rise residential areas, and those exceeding 10 m in height in other areas. In areas with no zoning designation, the local government will assign one or the other.

8 Restrictions on Use by Zoning District (Building Standards Act: Article 48 Table 2)

(2) In principle, no buildings can be built in the urbanization control area. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, such as when development permission based on the City Planning Law is obtained.
(3) If the property is located in more than one zoning district, the restrictions of the district to which the majority of the land area belongs will be applied.
