A revised outline zoning plan for Pokfulam has been gazetted for comments by the Town Planning Board. The changes to the plan are limited to those required to accommodate the redevelopment of Wah Fu Estate by the Housing Authority. Over the last 12 months government has adjusted the plans in response to comments from residents – including our concerns over the efficiency of the junction of Victoria Road and Pokfulam Road. Government also agreed with us on rejecting proposals to use of the valley directly opposite Bel-Air Phase 4-6.
Some 8,900 new units will be completed around 2025-2027. These will be used to decant the old estate prior to redevelopment. The Southern District Council has urged the government to continue to consult the community and to speed up planning for South Island Line (West).
The junction of Victoria Road/ Pok Fu Lam Road needs a major upgrade to cope with the additional traffic.
Government needs to commence the planning of South Island Line (West) ASAP.
The development along Victoria Road near St. Paul’s should be set back to avoid a canyon effect.
Although the nearest buildings are over 300m away, we want a say over the final design and colour scheme of the buildings to ensure they blend in with the mountain backdrop.
