Draft Tsuen Wan Outline Zoning Plan approved
     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Tsuen Wan Outline Zoning Plan (OZP). 

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the development and redevelopment within the Tsuen Wan area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (February 23). 

     The planning scheme area, about 743.48 hectares, covers Tsuen Wan Valley and its adjoining areas, and forms part of the Tsuen Wan New Town. The area extends from Wo Yi Hop Road in the east to Yau Kom Tau in the west.

     The approved OZP has incorporated the amendment shown on the draft Tsuen Wan OZP No. S/TW/36, which mainly involves rezoning a site at the upper section of Lo Wai Road from "Green Belt" to "Government, Institution or Community (10)" for redevelopment into a proposed private columbarium.

     The Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP are amended to take into account the above amendment. Opportunity is also taken to update the general information of various land use zones and the planning circumstances, where appropriate.

     The approved Tsuen Wan OZP No. S/TW/37 is available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Tsuen Wan and West Kowloon District Planning Office, (iv) the Tsuen Wan District Office and (v) the Tsuen Wan Rural Committee.

     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 at the Town Planning Board's website (www.tpb.gov.hk).
