Six draft Outline Zoning Plans amended

     The Town Planning Board today (June 30) announced the amendment of six draft Outline Zoning Plans (OZPs).

     The amendment mainly involved revision to the Notes for the "Industrial" zone of the OZPs by adding, where appropriate, the uses of "Eating Place (not elsewhere specified)", "Institutional Use (not elsewhere specified)", "Public Clinic" and "Training Centre" in wholesale conversion of an existing building in Column 2 of the user schedule to increase the flexibility for changes of uses in wholesale conversion of existing industrial buildings.  

     To address concerns about fire safety, the uses would only be permissible, upon application, in wholesale conversion of an existing industrial building so that industrial and commercial uses would not co-exist after conversion.

     The six OZPs incorporating the amendment are as follows:

* Draft Kennedy Town and Mount Davis OZP No. S/H1/19
* Draft Chai Wan OZP No. S/H20/18
* Draft South West Kowloon OZP No. S/K20/26
* Draft Fanling/Sheung Shui OZP No. S/FSS/15
* Draft Sha Tin OZP No. S/ST/25
* Draft Ping Shan OZP No. S/YL-PS/13

     The OZPs incorporating the amendment are available for public inspection during normal office hours at the Secretariat of the Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters in North Point and Sha Tin, and the relevant District Planning Offices, District Offices and/or Rural Committee Offices.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendment to the Secretary of the Board on or before August 30. Representations made to the Board will be available for public inspection.

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