Approved Tin Shui Wai Outline Zoning Plan amended

   The Town Planning Board today (October 26) announced amendments to the approved Tin Shui Wai Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

    The amendments involve zoning amendments to reflect the as-built situation of the Hong Kong Wetland Park and its status of a Special Area designated under the Country Parks Ordinance, to excise a proposed school site from the "Comprehensive Development Area" ("CDA") zone in Area 112 for designation as "Government, Institution or Community" zone, to rezone various areas to "Open Space", and to revise the Notes of the "CDA" zone mainly to specify a reduced development intensity and the requirement for an air ventilation assessment in the submission of Master Layout Plan.

    The draft Tin Shui Wai OZP No. S/TSW/11, incorporating the above amendments, is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters in North Point and Sha Tin, the Tuen Mun and Yuen Long District Planning Office, the Yuen Long District Office and the Ping Shan Rural Committee.
    Any person can make representation in respect of the amendments in writing to the Secretary of the Board on or before December 27, 2007. Representations made to the Board will be available for public inspection.
     Copies of the draft plan are available for sale at the Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei. The electronic version of the plan can be viewed at the Board's website at
