Draft Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South Outline Zoning Plan and Draft Hok Tau Outline Zoning Plan approved
     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South Outline Zoning Plan (OZP) and draft Hok Tau OZP.
     "The approved OZPs provide statutory land use planning frameworks to guide the development and redevelopment within the areas of Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South and Hok Tau," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (December 16).

     The planning scheme area of Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South, covering about 377 hectares, is bounded by Sha Tau Kok Road in the north, Princess Hill in the northeast, Lung Shan in the south, and Fanling/Sheung Shui New Town in the west.
     The planning scheme area of Hok Tau, covering about 350 hectares, is located about three kilometres to the east of the Fanling/Sheung Shui New Town. It is bounded by Princess Hill in the north, Queen's Hill and a number of villages in Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South in the northwest, and Pat Sin Leng Country Park in the southeast. The eastern side of Tai Leng Pei mountain range (including the Country Park Management Centre), which forms part of Pat Sin Leng Country Park, is not included in the planning scheme area.
     The approved OZPs have incorporated amendments respectively shown on the draft Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South OZP No. S/NT-LYT/18 and draft Hok Tau OZP No. S/NE-HT/6, which mainly involve rezoning a site to the north of Shan Lai Court from "Residential (Group B)" and "Residential (Group A)" to "Residential (Group A)1" to facilitate public housing development; and excision of a piece of land to the southeast of Shung Him Tong Village from the planning scheme area of the Hok Tau OZP for incorporation into the Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South OZP, and rezoning that piece of land together with its adjoining land to the west from "Green Belt" and "Agriculture" to "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Cemetery" to reflect its existing cemetery use. 
     Opportunity is also taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statements of the OZPs to reflect the above amendments and to update the general information of various land use zonings and the planning circumstances, where appropriate.
     The approved Lung Yeuk Tau and Kwan Tei South OZP No. S/NE-LYT/19 and the approved Hok Tau OZP No. S/NE-HT/7 are available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Sha Tin, Tai Po and North District Planning Office, (iv) the North District Office and (v) the Fanling District Rural Committee.

     Copies of the approved OZPs are available for sale at the Map Publications Centres in North Point and Yau Ma Tei. The electronic version of the OZPs can be viewed at the Town Planning Board's website (www.info.gov.hk/tpb).
