Approved Sai Kung Town Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (August 24) announced amendments to the approved Sai Kung Town Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involved rezoning two sites in the Tui Min Hoi area from "Government, Institution or Community(4)" to "Residential (Group B)4" and from "Government, Institution or Community" to "Residential (Group B)5" respectively, in order to provide more housing sites to meet the development needs of Hong Kong. The maximum plot ratio, site coverage and building height restrictions for the sites are specified in the Notes.

     The draft Sai Kung Town OZP No. S/SK-SKT/5 incorporating the amendments is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters of the Planning Department in North Point and Sha Tin, the Sai Kung and Islands District Planning Office, the Sai Kung District Office in Tseung Kwan O and the Sai Kung Rural Committee in Sai Kung.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of Town Planning Board on or before October 24. 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 on the Town Planning Board's website (
