The Government Gazette for the commencement of the Development Scheme (“the Project”) was first published on 5 March 2021 and a freezing survey was conducted in the project area on the same day.
According to section 25 of URAO, the Urban Renewal Authority (“URA”) submitted the draft Development Scheme Plan (“DSP”) of the Project to the Town Planning Board (“TPB”) for consideration on 5 March 2021.
On 9 July 2021, the TPB has published the draft DSP under section 5 of Town Planning Ordinance for public inspection. On 7 January 2022, the TPB conducted hearing on the comments and representations received on the draft DSP during the public inspection period.
The Chief Executive in Council (“CE in C”) approved the draft DSP of the Project on 31 May 2022 and published the decision in Gazette on 10 June 2022. The approved DSP No. S/K9/URA3/2 of the Project was published on the same day.
Since CE in C has approved the Project, the URA will soon issue acquisition offers and compensation to the affected owners and tenants according to prevailing policies.
Project commenced in March 2021.
Targeted completion by 2032.
The Project aims to re-structure and re-plan the area through redevelopment to enhance the walkability and connectivity of the area, and to integrate the planned pedestrian and traffic networks with the adjoining URA redevelopment projects to manifest the planning gains and synergy effects for the wider neighbourhood.
The key planning proposals of the Project includes:
- Inclusion of three road sections for redevelopment and/or provision of pedestrian walkways and communal spaces to create a car-free zone and pleasant walking environment;
- Provision of a footbridge connection at the Project to facilitate a footbridge development to provide a safe and direct pedestrian linkage between the MTR station exits and the wider neighbourhood adjoining the Project;
- Re-routing of traffic network to enhance the traffic circulation;
- Creation of an all-weathered communal space in the Project to become a focal point for community gathering and place-making;
- Provision of not less than 5,500sq.m. non-domestic GFA for GIC uses to meet the community needs;
- Redevelopment of the existing dilapidating buildings into modern residential development cum commercial/retail/GIC components.
The Project may also include other facilities and uses as required by the TPB.
