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).
My initial views are 我初步的意見是：
- 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.
The Housing Authority has revised their plans and reduced the development area by 30% to 13 hectares. The number of units is maintained at 8,900 by increasing the height. The target completion date is 2025. The junction of Victoria Road and Pokfulam Road will be upgraded. The revised plans will reduce the traffic impact of the new development for this junction. However, we will continue to pressure for a grade separated junction design. And we are asking for solutions for the shortage of parking facilities for goods vehicles, and a timetable for the South Island (West) MTR line. These plans will be discussed in the District Council next week.

The Housing Authority advised this week that a revised master plan for Wah Fu and the extension up the hill towards Chi Fu will be made available in June. They are taking into account concerns expressed by the community. The intention is to update the Pokfulam Outline Zoning Plan before the end of 2017. In the meantime we will ask the Transport and Housing Bureau to redesign the Pok Fu Lam Road/Victoria Road junction to cope with the future increased traffic flow. We will keep you posted with updates when available.

The Housing Authority has released new information on their plans for the Wah Fu Estate redevelopment. They have reduced the footprint near Chi Fu. 8,900 units will be built on five sites. Residents from Wah Fu will be transferred to the new sites so that the old estate can be redeveloped starting 2024. I have raised questions over the capacity of the Pok Fu Lam Road/ Victoria Road junction, the timing of the new MTR, and requested better visuals so that Pokfulam residents can better understand the impacts.
