Draft Kwu Tung South Outline Zoning Plan approved
     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Kwu Tung South Outline Zoning Plan (OZP). 
     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the development and redevelopment within the Kwu Tung South area", a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (April 12). 
     The planning scheme area, covering about 525 hectares, is bounded by the Hong Kong Golf Club in the east, Fanling Highway in the north, Ki Lun Shan (Hadden Hill) in the west and the Lam Tsuen Country Park in the south.

     The approved OZP has incorporated the amendments shown on the draft Kwu Tung South OZP No. S/NE-KTS/19, which mainly involves (i) stipulation of Area (a), Area (b) and building height restrictions for a "Comprehensive Development Area" ("CDA") zone to the north of Hang Tau Village fronting Hang Tau Road and (ii) rezoning a site to the south of Kwu Tung Road and to the west of Hang Tau Road from "CDA", "Agriculture" and an area shown as 'Road' to "CDA(3)" with stipulation of building height restriction for residential development.
     The Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP are amended to take into account the above amendments. Opportunity is also taken to update the general information of various land use zones and the planning circumstances, where appropriate. 
     The approved Kwu Tung South OZP No. S/NE-KTS/20 is available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Fanling, Sheung Shui and Yuen Long East District Planning Office, (iv) the North District Office and (v) the Sheung Shui District Rural Committee.
