Draft Yuen Long Outline Zoning Plan amended

    The Town Planning Board today (November 23) announced amendments to the draft Yuen Long Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments included the deletion of a portion of the "Government, Institution or Community(1)" ("G/IC(1)"), "Open Space" ("O") and "Village Type Development" ("V") zones as well as the rezoning of three areas from "G/IC(1)", "O" and an area shown as 'Road' to "V" in Area 16. These amendments are made consequential to the incorporation of the road scheme for the Kau Hui Development Engineering Works in Area 16, Yuen Long, Phase 2 - Extension of Road L3 authorised under the Roads (Works, Use and Compensation) Ordinance (Cap. 370).
