Draft Kai Tak Outline Zoning Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Kai Tak Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment within the Kai Tak area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (September 14).

     The planning scheme area of about 323 hectares covers the North Apron Area, South Apron Area and Runway Area of the ex-Kai Tak Airport site, Ma Tau Kok waterfront, Kwun Tong waterfront, Cha Kwo Ling waterfront, Kai Tak Approach Channel, To Kwa Wan Typhoon Shelter and Kwun Tong Typhoon Shelter. The Kai Tak site is proposed to be developed as the "Heritage, Green, Sports and Tourism Hub of Hong Kong".

     About 34.69 hectares of land has been reserved for residential developments. These include an existing private residential development at the To Kwa Wan waterfront and two public housing sites along the eastern boundary of the Kai Tak City Centre, medium-density residential developments in Kai Tak City Centre and low-density residential developments in the Runway Area, which are zoned "Residential (Group A)", "Residential (Group B)" and "Residential (Group C)".

     About 14 hectares are zoned "Commercial" ("C"), reserved for commercial development to meet strategic needs. These "C" sites are located in the Kai Tak City Centre (on the south-western part of the Shatin to Central Link Kai Tak Station), the South Apron Area at the Kowloon Bay waterfront and the Runway Area.

     About 9.62 hectares are zoned "Comprehensive Development Area" ("CDA") and intended for comprehensive development/redevelopment for commercial and/or residential uses. Three "CDA" sites abutting the Lung Tsun Stone Bridge Preservation Corridor, two are adjacent to the Kai Tak River and one is located at the Ma Tau Kok waterfront.

     About 37.85 hectares are zoned "Government, Institution or Community" and intended to provide land for Government, institution or community facilities to serve the needs of local residents and the wider community. This zoning covers a wide range of educational, medical, social welfare, community/cultural, sports, recreational, police and fire services and utility facilities.

     About 99.38 hectares is zoned "Open Space", which includes the Metro Park, Runway Park, Sung Wong Toi Park, open spaces near the Station Square and the Stadium and other district/local open spaces as well as the waterfront promenades.

     About 57.72 hectares is zoned "Other Specified Uses" and intended for specific developments. These include the cruise terminal, stadium, railway station, heliport, and waterfront and tourism related uses. The rest of the area, 69.94 hectares, is reserved for major roads and other uses.

     The approved Kai Tak OZP No. S/K22/4 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 Kowloon District Planning Office, and the Kowloon City, Wong Tai Sin and Kwun Tong District Offices.

     Copies of the approved OZP are available for sale at Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei. The electronic version of the plan can be seen on the Town Planning Board's website (
