Draft Chai Wan Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (January 20) announced amendments to the draft Chai Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the imposition of building height, plot ratio and gross floor area restrictions for various development zones to provide better planning control on future development/redevelopment and to meet public aspirations for a better living environment.  Several sites are rezoned from "Commercial/Residential" to "Residential (Group A)" to provide a clear planning intention, and a number of sites are rezoned to appropriate zonings to reflect their as-built situation. Other amendments include designation of non-building areas and building gaps to facilitate air ventilation.

     The draft Chai Wan OZP No. S/H20/20, 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 Hong Kong District Planning Office and the Eastern District Office.

     Any person may make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Board on or before March 20, 2012.  Representations made to the Board will be available for public inspection.

     Copies of the draft Chai Wan 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 at
