Draft Recommended Outline Development Plan (RODP)

 

1. Accommodating Diversity and Creating Activity Nodes

Street Vibrancy and Local Commercial

Three “Key Activity Nodes” would serve the residents in different parts of the PDA and in the vicinity by providing living necessities, retail and leisure opportunities. Residential communities would have retail shops and restaurants. Street-level commercial activities are encouraged to add vibrancy and vitality to the area.

Community Facilities

Existing residential and village communities could share use the planned infrastructure, community and commercial facilities.

Consolidation of Brownfield Operations

Land is reserved for storage and workshop uses, as well as for job opportunities. Subject to the implementation of the pilot case in Hung Shui Kiu NDA, the feasibility of multi-storey industrial compounds or other land-efficient means will be explored to accommodate some of the affected brownfield operations . Flexibility for accommodating some operations requiring open-air setting has also been allowed for.

Retaining Existing Residential Communities

The clusters of well-established residential communities in the PDA are proposed to be retained. Considering their current low-density nature, open space or low-density uses are planned in the surroundings to complement the environment.

Agriculture

The active agricultural land in the southern part of Tong Yan San Tsuen would be preserved. Joining with the preserved secondary woodland, the “Green Zone” is intended as a physical manifestation of the rural tradition of Yuen Long.
