Approved Ngau Chi Wan Outline Zoning Plan amended

     The Town Planning Board today (June 24) announced amendments to the approved Ngau Chi Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).
     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of Ngau Chi Wan Village from "Residential (Group B)" ("R(B)"), "Government, Institution or Community" ("G/IC"), "Open Space" ("O"), "Village Type Development" and areas shown as "Road" to "Residential (Group A)1" for public housing development, as well as from "R(B)", "G/IC" and areas shown as "Road" to "O" for public open space development. The amendments also include the rezoning of a strip of land along Lung Cheung Road from "G/IC" to an area shown as "Road" to reflect the existing and proposed alignment of road and pavement.
     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 scheme area, where appropriate.
