Approved Tsuen Wan Outline Zoning Plan amended
The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of various sites for housing developments, including two sites near Yau Kom Tau Village and at Po Fung Terrace from "Green Belt" to "Residential (Group B) 6" ("R(B)6") and "R(B)7" respectively; a site near Cheung Shan Estate mainly from "Residential (Group A)" ("R(A)") to "R(A)20"; and a site to the south of Kwok Shui Road from "Government, Institution or Community" to "R(A)21".
A site at Hilltop Road is also rezoned for housing development to take forward the decision of the Metro Planning Committee of the Board on a s.12A application, and six "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 Tsuen Wan OZP No. S/TW/34, 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 Tsuen Wan and West Kowloon District Planning Office, (iv) the Tsuen Wan District Office, and (v) the Tsuen Wan Rural Committee.
Any person may make written representations in respect of the amendments to the Secretary of the Board on or before April 26. 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).
