Draft Tin Fu Tsai Development Permission Area Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Tin Fu Tsai Development Permission Area (DPA) Plan.

     "The approved DPA Plan will provide planning guidance and facilitate development control within the Tin Fu Tsai area pending the preparation of an outline zoning plan (OZP) and to enable enforcement actions to be taken against any unauthorised development," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (December 16).

     The planning scheme area, covering about 54.5 hectares, falls mainly within Tuen Mun District with minor portions falling within Yuen Long District. It is encircled by the vegetated slopes of Tai Lam Country Park.

     The general planning intention is to prevent haphazard developments and conserve the rural and natural character of the Tin Fu Tsai area.

     The entire area is designated "Unspecified Use", pending detailed analysis and studies to establish the appropriate land uses in the course of preparing an OZP.

     The approved Tin Fu Tsai DPA Plan No. DPA/TM-TFT/2 is 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 Tuen Mun and Yuen Long District Planning Office; the Tuen Mun District Office and its sub-offices; the Yuen Long District Office; and the Tuen Mun Rural Committee.

     Copies of the approved DPA Plan 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 at the Board's website (
