The amendments are to take forward Stages 1 and 2 of the Yuen Long South (YLS) Development under the Revised Recommended Outline Development Plan of the "Planning and Engineering Study for Housing Sites in YLS - Investigation" (the YLS Study). The amendments mainly involve rezoning a site to the east of Kiu Hing Road from "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Rural Use" ("OU(RU)") and "Agriculture" to "Government, Institution or Community(1)" to support the YLS Development, rezoning of a site to the east of Kiu Hing Road from "OU(RU)" to "Residential (Group D)" for retaining an existing residential cluster as proposed by the YLS Study, and rezoning of a site to the east of Pak Sha Shan Road from "OU(RU)" to "Village Type Development(1)" for reprovisioning of village houses affected by government projects.
