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

     ​"The approved OZP provides a statutory land use planning framework to guide the development and redevelopment in the Chai Wan area," a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said today (April 19).

     The planning scheme area, covering about 614 hectares, is located in the eastern part of Hong Kong Island. It is generally bounded by Heng Fa Chuen to the north, Tai Tam Country Park to the west, Shek O Country Park to the south and the waterfront to the east.

     The approved OZP has incorporated amendments shown on the draft Chai Wan OZP No. S/H20/26, which mainly involve (i) rezoning a site to the south of Chai Wan Swimming Pool from "Green Belt" and "Government, Institution or Community" to "Residential (Group A)" ("R(A)") for public housing development; and (ii) rezoning a site to the immediate west of the MTR Chai Wan Station from "Comprehensive Development Area" to "R(A)" to reflect the as-built 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 Chai Wan OZP No. S/H20/27 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 Eastern 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 at the Town Planning Board's website (www.tpb.gov.hk).
