1 BASIC INFORMATION,1 1 Project Title,1 1 1 Hung Shui Kiu New Development Area. 1 2 Purpose and Nature of Project, 1 2 1 The Project was formerly studied under Planning and Development Study on North West. New Territories the NWNT Study from 1997 to 2003 The NWNT Study was an. integrated planning and engineering study to identify new development areas NDAs in. North West New Territories NWNT in response to projections of housing demand for. Hong Kong arising from the Territory Development Strategy Review in 1996 The NWNT. Study identified Hung Shui Kiu HSK as a potential NDA to accommodate the 100 000. strategic population on top of the population of the existing and committed developments. to meet the medium term demand Various land uses including residential government. institution or community education recreation business use open spaces container. back up green belt etc were proposed, 1 2 2 The NDA proposals were subsequently shelved in 2003 in the light of a slower population. growth Under the study of Hong Kong 2030 Planning Vision and Strategy the HK2030. Study completed by Planning Department in 2007 the NDA identified in the NWNT Study. was revisited and recommended for implementation As a result a comprehensive. planning and engineering study on the NDA the Study will be conducted. 1 2 3 The Study is to revisit the findings and recommendations of the NWNT Study to confirm the. feasibility of implementing the HSK NDA in the NWNT to meet long term housing social. economic and environmental needs and to prepare recommended outline development. plans RODP and preliminary engineering design for the development The scope of the. Study will include a planning and engineering study and an environmental impact. assessment EIA which is the subject EIA of this Project Profile. 1 2 4 The Project comprises the HSK NDA and the associated urban design and engineering. infrastructure works to service the NDA They are hereinafter collectively referred to as. 1 3 Name of Project Proponent, 1 3 1 The Project Proponent is New Territories North and West Development Office. NTN WDevO Civil Engineering and Development Department CEDD of the. Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. 1 4 Location and Scale of Project and History of Site. 1 4 1 The location of the Project is shown in Drawing No NTNZ 1556 The HSK NDA comprises. residential development with employment and community facilities According to the. former NWNT Study Hung Shui Kiu was identified with an area of about 450 ha and had. the potential to accommodate 100 000 strategic population and to create about 48 000 jobs. upon full development The present scale of the Project has to be investigated under the. subject Study Brief description of the location of HSK NDA is given below. The HSK NDA is located in the Tuen Mun Yuen Long Corridor The NDA is partly. bounded by strategic highways Yuen Long Highway on the eastern and southern sides. and the Kong Sham Western Highway on the west It is bounded to the north and west by. the foothill of Yuen Tau Shan and to the east by a number of traditional villages including.

The existing land use is generally of a mixed urban rural nature typical of a developing. rural area on the fringe of a growing urban environment Most building land is occupied for. low density residential development of not more than 3 storeys with smaller number of. higher density development The agricultural land is generally occupied by cultivation. orchards and other farm uses together with areas of mixed commercial industrial uses the. majority of which are of a low intensity local nature many with more temporary types of. structures There are also numerous business operations including container yards open. storage and concrete batching, The contribution of human occupation to the existing landscape is largely negative The. overall impression in the south is of urban sprawl with more open agricultural land and. some woodland further northwest In the northeast the area is dominated by the. concentration of containers stacked alongside the western edge of Tin Shui Wai New Town. 1 5 Number and Types of Designated Projects to be Covered by the Project Profile. 1 5 1 The Project includes a planning and engineering feasibility study of the HSK NDA which. was identified with an area of about 450 ha and had the potential to accommodate 100 000. strategic population under the former NWNT Study Therefore the Study falls within Item 1. under Schedule 3 of the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance EIAO i e. Engineering feasibility study of urban development projects with a study area covering. more than 20 ha or involving a total population of more than 100 000 The Study is a. Designated Project requiring an EIA report, 1 5 2 The Project also consists of various Schedule 2 Designated Projects under the EIAO that. may be identified in the course of the Study In particular the following elements of the. Project which are not exhaustive and are identified as Schedule 2 Designated Projects. are also included in this Project Profile, i Primary distributor roads and district distributor roads under Schedule 2 Part I. ii Road bridges more than 100 m in length between abutments under Schedule 2.

Construction Impacts, 3 1 1 Construction works include site clearance site formation the infrastructure provision and. any other infrastructure activities The major temporary air pollution will be dust generated. as a result of these construction works Due to the extent of the proposed development. extensive site formation works and subsequent construction works may have the potential. to pose adverse air quality impacts on the nearby air sensitive receivers. Operational Impacts, 3 1 2 The major permanent sources of air pollutants are the vehicular emissions from traffic on. major roads and the air pollutants emitted from the vicinity of the industrial stationary. sources There will be vehicular emissions from the roads surrounding the NDA including. the Kong Sham Western Highway Yuen Long Highway and all internal roads Chimney. emissions associated with nearby industrial premises are the stationary air pollutant. sources Odour from the proposed sewage pumping station expansion of sewage. treatment plant refuse transfer station and refuse collection points as well as the drainage. channels and nullahs is another potential source of air pollution Also the potential air. quality impacts associated with the proposed container back up site public transport. interchange and carport have to be addressed,Construction Impacts. 3 2 1 The noise generated from construction activities piling works and related powered. mechanical equipment have the potential to pose adverse noise impacts to the surrounding. sensitive receivers,Operational Impacts, 3 2 2 The future noise environment will be affected by road traffic noise railway noise both West. Rail and Light Rail Transit and fixed noise sources such as container back up site. industrial establishments rail station and ventilation systems. 3 3 Water Quality,Construction Impacts, 3 3 1 The NDA development and its associated container back up area will involve various.
construction activities undertaken at various time durations The activities which will have. likely impact on water quality include site formation sediment removal re alignment of. streams and rivers concrete washings construction of bridges bore piling construction. and upgrading of road network site workshop or depot and presence of additional. population workers The adverse impacts may comprise additional runoff increase of. suspended solids pH value and turbidity levels spillage of waste oils and generation of. additional sewage and wastewater The impact on Deep Bay will need to be addressed. Operational Impacts, 3 3 2 During operation of the NDA development the major potential water quality impacts will. include generation of sewage from the increased population production of wastewater. from commercial facilities and small businesses as well as runoff from roads railways.
