Draft Kwai Chung Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (May 9) announced amendments to the draft Kwai Chung Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site at Tsing Tsuen Road from "Industrial" ("I") to "Other Specified Uses" ("OU") annotated "Columbarium" for a proposed public columbarium development, a site at No. 2 to 6 Wing Lap Street from "I" to "OU" annotated "Columbarium (1)" for a proposed private columbarium development, and a site at Tai Lin Pai Road from "Government, Institution or Community (1)" to "Commercial (3)" for proposed commercial use. Opportunity is also taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statement to reflect the above amendments and to update the general information of various land use zones.

     The draft Kwai Chung OZP No. S/KC/27, 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 and the Kwai Tsing District Office.

     Any person can make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Town Planning Board on or before July 9. Representations made to the Town Planning Board will be available for public inspection.
