The owner of the disputed ground-floor premises in U Lam Terrace said she was shocked to learn of the rezoning laws, which could make her property worthless. Madam Wong, who refused to have her full name published, said she had used all her savings to buy the shop for $350,000 in 1985, but claimed she had never been notified by the Government of the rezoning restrictions. Madam Wong, now in her 60s, said the rent was now her only source of income. She complained the rezoning would put her investment in jeopardy if the shop could not be rented for commercial use. 'I obey the law, paying the rates and all other expenses. How could the Government do that to me?' she asked. The shop was left vacant between 1985 and 1993, when the rezoning took place. Madam Wong said she had been 'very selective' in choosing tenants. The 1,200-square-foot space was rented out in 1994 as an art gallery. It was turned into a restaurant and bar between 1996 and 1998 before it was let to Mr Miller-Jones.
