     The Town Planning Board today (July 5) announced the publication of the draft Urban Renewal Authority (URA) Kai Tak Road/Sa Po Road Development Scheme Plan (DSP) No. S/K10/URA1/1.

     The scheme area covers about 0.53 hectares and is designated as "Residential (Group A)". The scheme is for high-density residential developments with the provision of a sunken plaza and underground public vehicle park to serve the community.

     In accordance with section 25(9) of the URA Ordinance, the draft DSP replaces the approved Ma Tau Kok Outline Zoning Plan in relation to the area delineated and described in the draft DSP.

     The draft Kai Tak Road/Sa Po Road DSP No. S/K10/URA1/1 is now available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Kowloon District Planning Office, and (iv) the Kowloon City District Office.

     Any person may make written representations in respect of the DSP to the Secretary of the Town Planning Board on or before September 5. Any person who intends to make a representation is advised to read the revised Town Planning Board Guidelines No. 29B on "Submission and Publication of Representations, Comments on Representations and Further Representations under the Town Planning Ordinance" (TPB PG-No. 29B) promulgated in November 2018 and taking effect in 2019.

     Submission of a representation should comply with the requirements set out in TPB PG-No. 29B. In particular, the representer should take note of the following:

* If the representer fails to provide his/her full name and the first four alphanumeric characters of his/her HKID card/passport number as required under TPB PG-No. 29B, the representation submitted shall be treated as not having been made; and
* The Secretariat of the Board reserves the right to require the representer to provide identity proof for verification.

     The Guidelines and the submission form are available at locations (i) and (ii) above and the Board's website (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
