Draft Ma Tau Kok Outline Zoning Plan approved
**********************************************

     ‚ÄčThe Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Ma Tau Kok Outline Zoning Plan (OZP). 

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide development and redevelopment within the Ma Tau Kok area," a spokesperson for the Town Planning Board said today (September 8). 
      
     The planning scheme area, covering about 139 hectares, is located in Central Kowloon within Kowloon City District. It is bounded by Tung Tau Tsuen Road and Tung Tsing Road to the north; To Kwa Wan Road and Yuk Yat Street to the east; Ngan Hon Street and San Lau Street to the south; and Tin Kwong Road to the west.
      
     The approved OZP has incorporated the amendment shown on the draft Ma Tau Kok OZP No. S/K10/29, which involves revision to the stipulated building height restriction of a site zoned "Government, Institution or Community" at 40 Lung Kong Road from three storeys to 45 metres above Principal Datum, to take forward the decision of the Metro Planning Committee of the Town Planning Board on a Section 12A application. An area of the OZP replaced by the approved Urban Renewal Authority Nga Tsin Wai Road/Carpenter Road Development Scheme Plan is also indicated on the OZP.
      
     Opportunity is also taken to amend the Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP to reflect the above amendment and to update the general information of various land use zonings and the planning circumstances, where appropriate.
      
     The approved Ma Tau Kok OZP No. S/K10/30 is available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Kowloon District Planning Office and (iv) the Kowloon City District Office.
