     The amendments mainly involve (i) rezoning a site to the north of Discovery Valley Road from "Other Specified Uses" ("OU") annotated "Staff Quarters (5)" to "Residential (Group C) 12" ("R(C)12") for residential development; and (ii) incorporation of two sea areas in Nim Shue Wan into the planning scheme area, zoning the sea areas and rezoning the adjoining site near Nim Shue Wan from various zones to "R(C)13", "R(C)14", "R(C)15", "OU" annotated "Residential Development with Service Area Below", "OU" annotated "Sports and Recreation Club (4)" stipulating as Area B and "OU" annotated "Helicopter Landing Pad" for residential development with servicing facilities, sports and recreational facilities, and a helipad. 

     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 scheme area, where appropriate.
