Approved Wan Chai North Outline Zoning Plan amended
     The Town Planning Board today (January 13) announced amendments to the approved Wan Chai North Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     The amendments mainly involve the rezoning of a site covering the existing Wanchai Tower, Revenue Tower, Immigration Tower, Kong Wan Fire Station and Gloucester Road Garden together with part of Harbour Road from "Government, Institution or Community" zone and an area shown as 'Road' to "Other Specified Uses (6)" annotated "Exhibition Centre with Commercial Development" to facilitate a composite development comprising convention and exhibition facilities, hotel and office.

     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.

     The draft Wan Chai North OZP No. S/H25/5, incorporating the amendments, is available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Hong Kong District Planning Office and (iv) the Wan Chai Home Affairs Enquiry Centre.

Any person who intends to make a representation is advised to read the 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).
