Approved Ma Tau Kok Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (July 5) announced amendments to the approved Ma Tau Kok Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).
     Opportunity is taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP to reflect the latest amendments to the Definition of Terms used in Statutory Plans, Broad Use Terms and Master Schedule of Notes to Statutory Plans and to update the general information of various land use zonings and the planning area, where appropriate.
     The draft Urban Renewal Authority Kai Tak Road/Sa Po Road Development Scheme Plan (DSP) No. S/K10/URA1/1 has replaced that part of the approved Ma Tau Kok OZP No. S/K10/24 delineated and described in the DSP from the date the exhibition of the DSP is first notified in the Gazette on July 5.
