Draft Tsuen Wan Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (May 16) announced amendments to the draft Tsuen Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site to the west of the junction of Yeung Uk Road and Ma Tau Pa Road (Tsuen Wan Town Lot 393) from "Undetermined" to "Comprehensive Development Area (7)" for residential cum commercial development, and the rezoning of two pieces of land at the northern periphery of Sheung Kwai Chung Village from "Open Space" to "Village Type Development" to reflect the planning intention for the sites and their as-built situation.

     The draft Tsuen Wan OZP No. S/TW/30, 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 Tsuen Wan and West Kowloon District Planning Office, the Tsuen Wan District Office and the Tsuen Wan Rural Committee.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Town Planning Board on or before July 16. 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 (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
