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 framework to guide development and redevelopment in the Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board (the Board) said today (October 14).

     The planning scheme area, covering 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 is "Residential (Group A)" (about 67.24 hectares) which covers most of the existing and proposed public and private housing developments.

     About 21.23 hectares of land are zoned "Government, Institution or Community". Major existing facilities included 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 and primary and secondary schools.

     About 27.6 hectares are zoned "Open Space" for the provision of outdoor spaces for active and/or passive recreational uses. Another 39.1 hectares, mainly covering the Lion Rock hill slopes, are zoned "Green Belt" for the conservation of existing natural environment.

     About 1.34 hectares of land, covering the open water section of the Kai Tak Nullah, which is still subject to further study, is zoned "Undetermined".

     The approved Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau OZP No. S/K8/21 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, Kowloon District Planning Office and Wong Tai Sin District Office.

     Copies of the approved OZP 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 from the Board's website(
