The Government is to rezone a 2.27-hectare site in Hammer Hill to residential use, in order to provide about 2,000 flats on the market by 2001. The move is in line with a drive to increase housing supply to meet the territory's growing demand. The rezoning decision was made after the Town Planning Board yesterday announced an amendment to the draft Ngau Chi Wan Outline Zoning Plan. Under the amendment, the site at King Tung Street in Hammer Hill has been rezoned from Government-institution-community use to residential. The residential site will be a housing project under the government-subsidised Private Sector Participation Scheme. Based on a plot ratio of 7.5 times, the project will provide 1,900 units to 2,100 flats by 2000 or 2001, a town planner said. The site is occupied by Golden Harvest Entertainment (Holdings) as a film production base under short-term leasing tenancy. It is understood that Golden Harvest will move the base out of the site this year. The Government said any one affected by the amendment could submit written objection to the Secretary of the Town Planning Board.
