"The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment within the Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (March 13).
The planning scheme area (the Area), covering an area of about 184 hectares, is located in Central Kowloon within Wong Tai Sin District. It is bounded by Junction Road/Chuk Yuen Road and Lion Rock Tunnel Road to the west, Choi Hung Road and Shatin Pass Road to the east, and Tung Tau Tsuen Road/Tung Tsing Road and Prince Edward Road East to the south.
A large portion of the Area has already been developed. The predominant land use is residential with about 67.31 hectares of land zoned "Residential (Group A)", which is intended primarily for high-density developments.
About 0.71 hectares of land are zoned "Commercial" for commercial developments at Lok Fu Shopping Centre Phase II.
About 21.23 hectares of land are zoned "Government, Institution or Community" for the provision of government, institution or community (GIC) facilities serving the needs of the local residents and/or a wider district, region or the territory. Major existing GIC facilities including Wang Tau Hom Jockey Club Clinic, Hong Kong Buddhist Hospital, the swimming pool complex and indoor games hall at Morse Park, various religious institutions, service reservoirs and primary and secondary schools.
About 27.38 hectares are zoned "Open Space" for the provision of outdoor open-air public spaces for active and/or passive recreational uses serving the needs of local residents as well as the general public. A further 39.1 hectares, mainly covering the Lion Rock hill slopes, are zoned "Green Belt" for the conservation of the existing natural environment.
About 2.82 hectares of land are zoned "Other Specified Uses" ("OU") and include the "OU(Cemetery)" zone at Junction Road and other "OU" sites designated for petrol filling stations at Prince Edward Road East.
