Draft Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau Outline Zoning Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment in the Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (May 15).

     The Planning Scheme Area, measuring about 184 hectares, is located in Central Kowloon within the Wong Tai Sin District.

     The majority of the Area has already been developed.  The predominant land use in the Area is "Residential (Group A)" (about 71.77 hectares) covering most of the existing and proposed public and private housing developments.  The Lok Fu Shopping Centre Phase II situated between Wang Tau Hom East Road and Junction Road is the only site zoned "Commercial", measuring about 0.71 hectare.  

     To serve the needs of the local and district population, about 22.8 hectares of land is zoned "Government, Institution or Community".  Examples of the major existing facilities are the Wang Tau Hom Jockey Club Clinic, Hong Kong Buddhist Association Hospital, the swimming pool complex and indoor games hall at Morse Park, various religious institutions, service reservoirs, primary and secondary schools.  Kai Tak Nullah falls within this zone and is proposed to be decked in the long term to provide land for urban greening and road widening.  In addition, about 27.17 hectares of land are zoned "Open Space" for the provision of outdoor open-air space for recreational uses.  Major existing open spaces include Morse Park and Lion Rock Park near Lung Cheung Road.  

     About 39.1 hectares of land, mainly covering the Lion Rock hill slopes, is zoned "Green Belt" for the conservation of the existing natural environment.  About 2.8 hectares of land where the existing cemetery and petrol filling stations are situated is zoned "Other Specified Uses".  The rest of the Area, measuring about 19.77 hectares, is designated for major roads and other related uses.

     The approved Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau OZP No. S/K8/19 is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Town Planning Board Secretariat, the Planning Department's Planning Enquiry Counters in North Point and Sha Tin, the Kowloon District Planning Office, as well as the Wong Tai Sin 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 can be viewed at the Board's website (
