Draft Yung Shue O Development Permission Area Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Yung Shue O Development Permission Area (DPA) Plan.

     "The approved DPA Plan provides guidance for planning and facilitates development control within the Yung Shue O area during the period required for detailed analysis of the land use pattern, study of infrastructural provisions and examination of development options for the formulation of an outline zoning plan (OZP)," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (May 10).

     The Planning Scheme Area, covering an area of about 33.72 hectares, is located at the western end of the Sai Kung Peninsula, with the Sai Kung West Country Park surrounding it on the north, east and south, and Three Fathoms Cove (Kei Ling Ha Hoi) lying to its west.

     The general planning intention of the Area is to protect its high conservation and landscape value and the rural settings which complement the overall naturalness and the landscape beauty of the surrounding Sai Kung West Country Park. The planning intention is also to reflect the existing recognised village of Yung Shue O.

     About 2.87 hectares of the Area is zoned "Village Type Development" to reflect existing recognised villages. Land within this zone is primarily intended for development of Small Houses by indigenous villagers. It is also intended to concentrate village-type development within this zone for a more orderly development pattern, efficient use of land and provision of infrastructure and services.

     The remaining 30.85 hectares of the Area is designated as "Unspecified Use", pending detailed analysis and studies to establish the appropriate land uses in the course of preparing the OZP.

     The approved Yung Shue O DPA Plan No. DPA/NE-YSO/2 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 Sha Tin, Tai Po and North District Planning Office; the Tai Po District Office; and the Sai Kung North 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 Town Planning Board's website (
