Approved Yuen Long Outline Zoning Plan amended
     The Town Planning Board today (January 29) announced amendments to the approved Yuen Long Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site at near the junction of Castle Peak Road - Yuen Long and Yau Tin East Road from "Government, Institution or Community" to "Government, Institution or Community(6)" with stipulation of maximum building height restriction for a proposed social welfare service complex cum youth hostel development. Two sites are also rezoned to take forward the decisions of the Rural and New Town Planning Committee of the Board on two s.12A applications, and two "Comprehensive Development Area" sites are rezoned to reflect the existing developments. Opportunity is also taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP to reflect the above amendments and to update the general information of various land use zonings and the planning area, where appropriate.

     The draft Yuen Long OZP No. S/YL/24 incorporating the amendments is now available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Tuen Mun and Yuen Long West District Planning Office, (iv) the Yuen Long District Office, (v) the Ping Shan Rural Committee and (vi) the Shap Pat Heung Rural Committee.

     Any person may make written representation in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Board on or before March 29. 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).

     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 or her full name and the first four alphanumeric characters of his or her Hong Kong identity card or passport number as required under TPB PG-No. 29B, the representation submitted shall be treated as not having been made; and
