OZP to Include Land Reclamation (China)

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

The approved OZP provides a statutory land use framework to guide development and redevelopment in the Wan Chai North area,” a spokesman for the Town Planning Board said.

The Planning Scheme Area covers an area of about 55.17 hectares, of which about 5.7 hectares are to be reclaimed.

It is bounded by Hing Fat Street to the east, Victoria Park Road and Gloucester Road to the south, and Fenwick Pier Street to the west.

It includes the existing Wan Chai area to the north of Gloucester Road and Island Eastern Corridor and the proposed reclamation area to the north of the existing seawall.

The extent of the reclamation has been determined by the minimum extent required for providing the essential transport infrastructure, namely the Central-Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) and associated road connections, and for re-provisioning the affected facilities.

Other than meeting infrastructure needs, harbourfront enhancement will be the main use on the land formed for the construction of the CWB.

The area also covers the existing built-up area comprising commercial and office developments, art and cultural developments, government office buildings and government, institution or community (GIC) facilities.
