Approved Shau Kei Wan Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (November 7) announced amendments to the approved Shau Kei Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the imposition of building height restrictions on development zones including "Comprehensive Development Area", "Residential (Group A)", "Government, Institution or Community", "Other Specified Uses" and various zoning amendments.  Revisions are also made to the maximum permitted plot ratio for the public housing estates, Ming Wah Dai Ha and the "Other Specified Uses (Business)" zone.  

     The main objective of the amendments is to meet public aspirations for a better living environment.  While aiming to achieve a varied building height profile across the district, due respect is paid to the importance of preserving the local character.  Specifically, development/ redevelopment in the old built-up areas along Shau Kei Wan Road and Sai Wan Ho Street are restricted to a maximum building height of 100mPD or 115mPD.  To cater for amalgamation of small sites in these areas, the maximum building heights are allowed to increase by 20m for sites with an area of 400 square metres or more.

     The draft Shau Kei Wan OZP No. S/H9/15, incorporating the 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 Hong Kong District Planning Office and the Eastern District Office.

     Any person may make written representations in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Board on or before January 7, 2009.  Representations made to the Board will be available for public inspection.

     Copies of the draft Shau Kei Wan OZP No. S/H9/15 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
