Draft Siu Ho Wan Outline Zoning Plan approved
"The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide developments in Siu Ho Wan," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (February 22).
The planning scheme area covers an area of about 186 hectares located to the east of the Tung Chung New Town Extension area at the northern shore of Lantau Island. The area stretches from Sham Shui Kok in the northeast to the proposed Tai Ho Interchange in the southwest, and is enclosed by the Lantau North (Extension) Country Park in the east and south.
About 15.54 hectares of the land is zoned "Government, Institution or Community". This zone is intended primarily for provision of government, institution or community facilities serving the needs of the local residents and/or a wider district, region or the territory.
Land designated for specific uses including "Railway Depot and Public Transport Interchange with Commercial/Residential Development", "Water Treatment Works", "Sewage Treatment Works", "Organic Resources Recovery Centre", "Refuse Transfer Station", "Columbarium" and "Pumping Station and Associated Facilities", totalling about 63.6 hectares, is zoned "Other Specified Uses".
About 68.04 hectares of the land is zoned "Green Belt". It is intended to define the limits of urban and sub-urban development areas by natural features and to contain urban sprawl as well as to provide passive recreational outlets.
The approved OZP No. S/I-SHW/2 is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters of the Planning Department in North Point and Sha Tin, the Sai Kung and Islands District Planning Office, the Islands District Office and its sub-offices in Mui Wo and Tung Chung, and the Tsuen Wan 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 Board's website (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
