Dear Ms. Tam & Mr. Li,

Re: Unauthorized Change of Land Use at Discovery Bay Recreation Club

I am writing to file a complaint against Hong Kong Resort Company Limited (HKR) for acting in violation of the Outline Zoning Plan No. S/I-DB/4 (OZP) and the latest approved Master Layout Plan No. 6.01E (MLP).

HKR posted a notice on the noticeboard of the Discovery Bay Recreation Club on 11 March, 2016, advising members that the “lawn area adjacent to the Discovery Bay Recreation Club “ will be resumed by HKR on 24 March, 2016. Please refer to the attached notice.

It has further been learned that HKR plans to convert this area into a general vehicle parking area. The area concerned lies within the land zoned for Sports and Recreation Club use on the OZP, and for Residents Club on the MLP. I understand that Vehicle Parking Area is not an approved use under either the MLP or the OZP. While Planning and Lands Departments may show some discretion to allow parking for visitors to the Club, a stand-alone car park for general use, unassociated with the Club, is clearly contrary to the land use and planning requirements.

Discovery Bay residents have organised a petition and over the last weekend hundreds of signatures have been collected to object to HKR’s plan. Please refer to the following hyperlink for details:

I would be grateful if you follow up immediately to seek an explanation from the developer, pending full consultation under the statutory process.

Yours sincerely,

Amy Yung
