Approved Ngau Tau Kok and Kowloon Bay Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (November 19) announced amendments to the approved Ngau Tau Kok and Kowloon Bay Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve imposing building height restrictions for various zones outside the Kowloon Bay Business Area.  The main objectives are to provide better planning control on new developments, to meet public aspirations for better living conditions, and for greater clarity and transparency in the statutory planning system.

     Other amendments include the designation of non-building areas and building gaps to facilitate air ventilation, as well as the rezoning of various sites to reflect the as-built conditions on the sites or the planning intention for the sites.

     The draft Ngau Tau Kok and Kowloon Bay OZP No. S/K13/26 incorporating the amendments 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 and the Kwun Tong District Office.

     Any person may make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of Town Planning Board on or before January 19, 2011.  Representations made to the Town Planning 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 Town Planning Board's website (
