Approved North Point Outline Zoning Plan amended
The amendments mainly involve (i) revision to the building height restriction of a site zoned "Government, Institution or Community" at 210 Java Road from eight storeys to 110 metres above Principal Datum, to facilitate the redevelopment of an existing social services building; (ii) rezoning of two sites from "Comprehensive Development Area (CDA)" and "CDA(1)" to "Other Specified Uses" annotated "Commercial and Residential Development" and "Commercial (2)" respectively to reflect the completed composite and commercial developments; and (iii) other zoning amendments to reflect the current uses and as-built conditions of various sites.
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.
