The Chief Executive in Council has approved the draft of Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau Outline Zoning Plans.
"The approved OZP provides a statutory land use framework to guide development and redevelopment in the Wang Tau Hom and Tung Tau area,"said a spokesman for the Town Planning Board.
The planning scheme area, covering about 184 hectares, is located in Central Kowloon within the Wong Tai Sin District.
The majority of the area has already been developed. The predominant land use is "Residential", which is about 67.24 hectares and covers most of the existing and proposed public and private housing developments.
About 21.23 hectares of land are zoned "Government, Institution or Community". Major existing facilities included Wang Tau Hom Jockey Club Clinic, Hong Kong Buddhist Association Hospital, the swimming pool complex and indoor games hall at Morse Park, various religious institutions, service reservoirs and primary and secondary schools.
About 27.6 hectares are zoned "Open Space" for the provision of outdoor spaces for active and/or passive recreational uses. Another 39.1 hectares, mainly covering the Lion Rock hill slopes, are zoned "Green Belt" for the conservation of existing natural environment.
Furthermore, about 1.34 hectares of land, covering the open water section of the Kai Tak Nullah, which is still subject to further study, is zoned "Undetermined".
