Draft Cheung Sheung Development Permission Area Plan gazetted

     The Town Planning Board today (March 21) announced the publication of the Draft Cheung Sheung Development Permission Area (DPA) Plan.

     The Cheung Sheung area, covering an area of 18 hectares, is located at the centre of Sai Kung West Country Park, on an upland plateau about 300 metres above sea level, surrounded by ridges and spurs.

     A spokesman for the Town Planning Board said 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 country park.

     The area has been designated "Unspecified Use" primarily for giving statutory protection to the area pending further studies to be undertaken in the preparation of an Outline Zoning Plan.

     The draft Cheung Sheung DPA Plan 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.

     Any person may make representation, stating the particular matter in the draft plan to which the representation relates, the nature of and reasons for the representation, and the amendments (if any) proposed to the draft plan, to the Secretary of the Town Planning Board on or before May 21.

     Copies of the draft 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 (
