Draft Hoi Ha Outline Zoning Plan approved
     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Hoi Ha Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).
     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the nature and rural conservation and village type development within the Hoi Ha area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (March 26).
     The planning scheme area, covering about 8.45 hectares, is located at the northern coast of the Sai Kung peninsula, and accessible by vehicles via Hoi Ha Road. It is encircled by Sai Kung West Country Park on three sides, with the remaining side fronting the scenic Hoi Ha Wan, which is a designated Marine Park as well as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
     Hoi Ha is predominantly a rural area with high scenic and landscape value. Hoi Ha Village is the only recognised village in the area.
     The approved OZP has incorporated amendments shown on the draft Hoi Ha OZP No. S/NE-HH/3, which mainly involved the rezoning of a piece of land at the western part of the "Village Type Development" ("V") zone to "Green Belt(1)" and a piece of land at the eastern part of the "V" zone to "Coastal Protection Area". 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 circumstances, where appropriate.
     Other zonings shown on the OZP include "Conservation Area", "Government, Institution or Community" and "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Water Sports Recreation Centre".
     The approved Hoi Ha OZP No. S/NE-HH/4 is now available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Board; the Planning Enquiry Counters of the Planning Department in North Point and Sha Tin; the Sha Tin, Tai Po and North District Planning Office; the Tai Po District Office; and the Sai Kung North Rural Committee.
     Copies of the approved OZP are available for sale at the Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei. The electronic version of the plan can be viewed at the Board's website (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
