Approved Kwai Chung Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board announced amendments to the approved Kwai Chung Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involved imposing building height restrictions for various zones to guide future development/redevelopment in the Kwai Chung area. The main objectives are to provide better planning control on new developments, and to meet public aspirations for better living conditions and greater certainty and transparency in the statutory planning system. Other amendments include the designation of non-building area and specification of building gap requirements to facilitate air ventilation, and rezoning of various sites to reflect existing uses on the sites or the planning intention for the sites.

     The draft Kwai Chung OZP No. S/KC/26 incorporating the amendments is now available for public inspection during normal office hours at the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters in North Point and Sha Tin, the Tsuen Wan and West Kowloon District Planning Office and the Kwai Tsing District Office.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of Town Planning Board on or before June 20. 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 (
