     The Town Planning Board today (June 14) announced amendments to the approved Tsing Yi Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).
     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site to the southeast of Tsing Sheung Road from "Other Specified Uses" ("OU") annotated "Marine-related Uses" to "OU" annotated "Container Related Uses", and incorporation of related land and sea areas into the planning scheme area and zoning the areas as "OU" annotated "Container Related Uses" for barge berthing with supporting container storage and ancillary facilities.
