In 2017, the Government submitted a proposal to the Town Planning Board to rezone the land use. Five green belts in Tseung Kwan O – north of Tseung Kwan O Village, north of Fan Yip Road, south of Shek Siu Road, west of Lei Yue Wan Estate and east of Hong Kong Film City, a total of 11 hectares forest land proposed converted to residential use.
The site of the “Green Belt” (pictured) in the north of Tseung Kwan O Village, which was considered by the Town Planning Board, should not be rezoned to the “Residential (Group A) 7” zone. The minutes of the meeting are mainly (compared to the other four cities which are relatively close to the city centre and currently have access to the land). The site is relatively far from the centre of Tseung Kwan O and is not adjacent to any existing road. It is necessary to build a new access road. It would lead to extensive site formation works and affect the natural slopes. In addition, the proposed high-rise housing development is not compatible with the surrounding low-rise development. The meeting agreed that the “GB” zoning of the Amendment Item A site should be reinstated. Please sign the petition to welcome the decision of the Town Planning Board.
