Draft Fu Tei Au and Sha Ling Outline Zoning Plan approved
     The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft Fu Tei Au and Sha Ling Outline Zoning Plan (OZP).

     "The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the developments and redevelopments within the Fu Tei Au and Sha Ling area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (April 19).

     The planning scheme area, covering about 318 hectares, is bounded by Man Kam To boundary crossing in the north, Hung Lung Hang in the east, Ng Tung River in the southeast, Fu Tei Au Road in the southwest, and the MTR East Rail Line in the west.

     The approved OZP has incorporated the amendments shown on the draft Fu Tei Au and Sha Ling OZP No. S/NE-FTA/17, which mainly involves (i) rezoning a site in Wa Shan, Sheung Shui from "Agriculture" ("AGR") and "Green Belt" to "Residential (Group A)" for public housing development; and (ii) rezoning a piece of land to the west of the public housing site from "AGR" to "Government, Institution or Community" for re-provisioning of government facilities affected by the public housing development. 

     The Notes and Explanatory Statement of the OZP are amended to reflect the above amendments. Opportunity is also taken to update the general information of various land use zonings and the planning circumstances, where appropriate.

     The approved Fu Tei Au and Sha Ling OZP No. S/NE-FTA/18 is available for public inspection during office hours at (i) the Secretariat of the Town Planning Board, (ii) the Planning Enquiry Counters, (iii) the Sha Tin, Tai Po and North District Planning Office, (iv) the North District Office, (v) the Fanling District Rural Committee and (vi) the Sheung Shui District 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).
