Draft Hung Hom Outline Zoning Plan approved

    The Chief Executive in Council has approved draft Hung Hom Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use framework to guide development and redevelopment in the Hung Hom area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (November 16).

     The Planning Scheme Area, covering about 145 hectares, is located in the southeastern part of Kowloon Peninsula.  It is bounded by Ngan Hon Street to the north; Chatham Road North and the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) Hung Hom Station to the west; Kai Tak new development area to the east; and Victoria Harbour to the south.

     The existing built-up areas within the Hung Hom area are characterised by a mixture of residential, commercial and industrial uses, while the Reclamation Area serves to provide land for the extension of hotel/office developments from Tsim Sha Tsui East, residential developments, open space and public facilities to help redress the provision shortfalls.

     About 6.4 hectares of land is zoned "Commercial" which covers the existing commercial developments such as Hung Hom Commercial Centre, Peninsula Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Harbourfront and Harbour Plaza, and the proposed commercial developments at Cheong Tung Road and on the Reclamation Area.

     Some 22.1 hectares of land is zoned "Comprehensive Development Area" for comprehensive developments. The Whampoa Garden, a site at the junction of Hung Luen Road and Kin Wan Street and two sites at the junction of Cheong Hang Road and Winslow Street are within this zone.

     About 26.9 hectares of land, covering nearly all the existing residential developments in Hung Hom as well as the residential sites on the Reclamation Area, is zoned "Residential (Group A)".  Royal Peninsula and Laguna Verde are zoned "Residential (Group B)" covering about 6.6 hectares of land.

     About 15.1 hectares of land is zoned "Other Specified Uses" ("OU") for specific uses, such as funeral parlour/depot, public mortuary, KCRC freight yard and the Metropolis above, ferry piers and sewage treatment plant.  About 7.4 hectares of land under the "OU" zoning is intended for "Business" uses where a mix of non-polluting industrial, office and other commercial uses are permitted as of right.

     To serve the needs of the local and district population, about 13 hectares of land is zoned "Government, Institution or Community".  Examples of the major existing facilities are the fire station at Fat Kwong Street, the clinic at Station Lane, the Tai Wan Shan swimming pool complex, and the market complex at the junction of Ma Tau Wai Road and Dyer Avenue.  

     About 13.4 hectares of land is zoned "Open Space" for active and passive recreational uses.  The rest of the Area, about 41.6 hectares, is for major roads and other uses.

     The approved Hung Hom OZP No. S/K9/20 is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters in North Point and Sha Tin, the Kowloon District Planning Office, the Kowloon City District Office and the Yau Tsim Mong District Office.

     Copies of the approved OZP are available for sale at Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei.  The electronic version of the plan is viewable from the board's website at
