Approved Wong Nai Chung Outline Zoning Plan amended
The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of the northern and eastern part of the Caroline Hill Road (CHR) Site fronting Leighton Road from "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Sports and Recreation Club" and "Government, Institution or Community" (G/IC) to "Commercial (2)" for commercial development; the rezoning of the southern part of the CHR Site from "G/IC" to "G/IC (2)" for the establishment of the District Court, as well as the revision to the building height restrictions for the respective sites. Opportunity is also taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP to reflect the above amendments and to update the general information of various land use zonings, where appropriate.
