Draft Kennedy Town & Mount Davis Outline Zoning Plan approved

     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Kennedy Town & Mount Davis Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the development and redevelopment within the Kennedy Town and Mount Davis area," a spokesperson for the Town Planning Board said today (October 13).

     The planning scheme area, covering about 172 hectares, is situated at the north-western corner of Hong Kong Island. The Belcher Bay and Sulphur Channel constitute the natural boundaries in the north and west, Hill Road and Pok Fu Lam Road delineate the eastern boundary, while Mount Davis Road forms its southern limit.
     The approved OZP has incorporated an amendment shown on the draft Kennedy Town & Mount Davis OZP No. S/H1/23, which involves revision of building height restriction for a portion of the "Government, Institution or Community" zone at the junction of Pok Fu Lam Road and Pokfield Road from four storeys to 115 metres above Principal Datum (mPD) and 155mPD, to take forward the decision of the Metro Planning Committee of the Town Planning Board on a Section 12A application.

     Opportunity is also taken to amend the 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 Kennedy Town & Mount Davis OZP No. S/H1/24 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 Central and Western Home Affairs Enquiry Centre.

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