Draft Cheung Sha Wan Outline Zoning Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Cheung Sha Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment within the Cheung Sha Wan area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board (the Board) said today (January 10).

     The Planning Scheme Area, covering about 328 hectares of land, is located in West Kowloon within Sham Shui Po District. It is bounded by the hill slopes of Eagle's Nest and Piper's Hill to the north; Tai Po Road and Berwick Street to the east; Boundary Street and Tung Chau Street Park to the south; West Kowloon Corridor and Lai Chi Kok Road to the south-west and Butterfly Valley Road to the west.

     About 2.4 hectares of land are zoned "Commercial", which covers existing commercial developments in the area and a commercial site at 650 Cheung Sha Wan Road.

     About 0.3 hectares of land is zoned "Comprehensive Development Area" for comprehensive development/redevelopment for residential use.

     A total of 86.4 hectares of land are zoned "Residential (Group A)" for high-density residential developments, including private residential developments and public housing estates.

     About 2.7 hectares of land are zoned "Residential (Group C)" for low-to-medium density residential developments, which cover five existing private residential developments along Tai Po Road and a residential site along Caldecott Road.

     The "Residential (Group E)" zone, with an area of about 2.2 hectares, is intended for phasing out existing industrial uses through redevelopment or conversion for residential development on application to the Board. Two sites at the junction of Un Chau Street and Wing Lung Street, two sites at the junction of Yee Kuk Street and Fat Tseung Street and a site at the junction of Tonkin Street and Cheung Sha Wan Road are under this zoning.

     Some 41.4 hectares of land are zoned "Government, Institution or Community" for the provision of Government, institution or community facilities serving the needs of the local residents and/or a wider district, region or the territory.

     About 26.6 hectares of land are zoned "Open Space" for the provision of outdoor open-air public space for active and/or passive recreational uses.

     About 50.8 hectares of land, covering mainly the wooded foothills to the north of Ching Cheung Road and Tai Po Road, are zoned "Green Belt".

     About 25.9 hectares of land are zoned "Other Specified Uses" for specific uses.  

     Two sites of about 1.1 hectares have been designated as Urban Renewal Authority Development Scheme Plan (DSP) Areas. The DSP for Lai Chi Kok Road/Kweilin Street and Yee Kuk Street covers an area of about 0.3 hectare while the DSP for Hai Tan Street/Kweilin Street and Pei Ho Street covers an area of about 0.74 hectare.

     The approved Cheung Sha Wan OZP No. S/K5/35 is 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 and the Sham Shui Po District Office.

     Copies of the approved 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 (
