The Government Gazette for the commencement of the Development Scheme (“the Project”) was first published on 22 May 2020 and a freezing survey was conducted within the Project on the same day.
According to section 25 of URAO and as stated in the Gazette Notice, the URA submitted the draft Development Scheme Plan (“DSP”), the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Social Impact Assessment (“SIA”) Reports of the Project subsequently to the Town Planning Board (“TPB”) for consideration.
The documents are published for public inspection at the time and venues specified in the Government Gazette until the draft DSP is considered by the TPB.
In view that most of the comments and concerns received during public consultation were related to CBS issues, especially on the land matters of the undissolved CBS, the URA consulted different Government Bureaux/ Departments to address the related comments and concerns. An Information Summary on the dissolution, acquisition and resumption arrangement was issued to the affected CBS Members to clarify the CBS related issues.
In this connection, the URA has taken the opportunity to review the draft DSP to respond to the policy directives encouraging the URA to provide more Starter Home (SH) units. Opportunity is also sought to enhance the Development Scheme to achieve wider planning gains to the community. On 3 November 2022, the URA has submitted a revised draft DSP and Responses to Public Comments to the TPB for consideration.
On 21 April 2023, the TPB has published the draft DSP under section 5 of Town Planning Ordinance for public inspection at the venues specified in the Government Gazette. The draft DSP is available for public inspection for a period of two months from 21 April 2023 to 21 June 2023. Any person may make representation in writing to the TPB no later than 21 June 2023.
The URA will accord to prevailing policies to issue acquisition offers and compensation to the affected persons upon Chief Executive in Council's approval of the draft DSP and the approved DSP is gazetted.
Project commenced in May 2020.
Targeted completion by 2033.
In response to the Policy Address 2018 and 2019 (PAs) by the Chief Executive, the URA is invited to identify one or two clusters of Civil Servants’ Co-operative Building Society (CBS) Scheme sites suitable for high-density development as pilot sites, and explore the redevelopment mode in accordance with the usual project implementation approach adopted by the URA. The Project aims to fulfill the objectives of the PAs, to increase housing supply by full utilisation of the development potential of the cluster of CBS sites. In response to the subsequent policy directives, URA will provide about 950 Starter Home (SH) units within the Project to meet different housing market needs.
Whilst responding to the directives of the PA to meet housing needs, the Project also seeks to improve the overall environment and achieve wider planning gains through redevelopment in accordance with the Urban Renewal Strategy.
The proposed development of the Project includes:
- Re-structuring and replanning of the road network and land parcels to utilize the site potential and enhance walkability and connectivity.
- Not less than 2,500 sq.m. GFA will be reserved to provide appropriate Government, Institution or Community facilities to meet the community needs.
- An underground public vehicle park is proposed to provide more public car parking spaces for the community and to facilitate the removal of the on-street parking spaces for better pedestrian environment.
- Not less than 400 sq.m. of open space for public use is proposed in the Project for public enjoyment.
