     The Town Planning Board today (March 29) announced amendments to the approved Fanling/Sheung Shui Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site at Sheung Shui Area 30 from "Industrial" ("I") to "Residential (Group A)4" ("R(A)4") for public housing development; a site at Sheung Shui Area 4 from "I" and "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Bus Depot" to "R(A)4" for public housing development; a site to the east of Po Shek Wu Road, Sheung Shui Area 4 from "Open Space" to "Residential (Group A)5" for public housing development; a site at Jockey Club Road, Fanling Area 11 from "Government, Institution or Community" ("G/IC") to "R(A)4" for subsidised housing development; a site at Wu Tip Shan, Fanling Area 40 from "G/IC" to "Residential (Group A)6" to reflect an approved rezoning proposal; and other amendments to reflect the as-built alignments of Choi Yuen Road and San Wan Road.
