Draft Tai Tong Outline Zoning Plan approved
"The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment within the Tai Tong area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (August 20).
The planning scheme area, covering an area of about 960 hectares, is bounded by the ridge of Ho Hok Shan and Kam Tin South in the east, Castle Peak Road (Yuen Long Section) in the north, Yuen Long Highway in the north-west, Kiu Hing Road and Pak Sha Shan Road in the west and Tai Lam Country Park in the south.
Tai Tong is predominantly a rural area with mainly village settlements and farmland. The western and southwestern portions of Tai Tong along Kiu Hing Road and Pak Sha Shan Road form part of the Yuen Long South (YLS) Development Area.
The approved OZP has incorporated amendments made to the draft Tai Tong OZP No. S/YL-TT/17, which cover part of the YLS Development Stage 2 including the rezoning of an area to "Government, Institution or Community (1)" mainly for proposed schools; an area to "Residential (Group D)" to reflect the existing residential cluster; and a site to "Village Type Development (1)" for reprovisioning of village houses affected by government projects.
Other zonings shown on the OZP include "Residential (Group A)", "Residential (Group C)", "Village Type Development", "Open Storage", "Government, Institution or Community", "Open Space", "Recreation", "Recreation (1)", "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Rural Use", "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Petrol Filling Station", "Agriculture", "Green Belt", "Conservation Area" and "Country Park".
The approved Tai Tong OZP No. S/YL-TT/18 is available for public inspection during office hours at the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, the Planning Enquiry Counters of the Planning Department in North Point and Sha Tin, the Tuen Mun and Yuen Long West District Planning Office, the Yuen Long District Office, the Ping Shan Rural Committee and the Shap Pat Heung 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 on the Town Planning Board's website (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
