Draft Mong Kok Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (September 17) announced amendments to the draft Mong Kok Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involved imposing building height restrictions for various zones to guide future development/redevelopment in the Mong Kok area. The main objectives are to provide better planning control on new developments, and to meet public aspirations for better living conditions and greater certainty and transparency in the statutory planning system.

     Other amendments include the designation of non-building areas and specification of setback requirements to facilitate air ventilation as well as rezoning of a number of sites to reflect completed developments.

     The draft Mong Kok OZP No. S/K3/28, 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 Tsuen Wan and West Kowloon District Planning Office and the Yau Tsim Mong District Office.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendments to the secretary of the Board on or before November 17. Representations made to the Board will be available for public inspection.

     Copies of the draft OZP are available for sale at the Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei. The electronic version of the OZP can be viewed at the Board's website (
