三幅郊野公園不包括土地的分區計劃大綱草圖
Draft Outline Zoning Plans for 3 Country Park enclaves


政府現正就以下地方的三幅分區計劃大綱草圖邀請意見:
The Government is inviting comments on the three Draft Outline Zoning Plans at:
1. 白腊 Pak Lap
2. 海下 Hoi Ha
3. 鎖羅盆 So Lo Pun

城市規劃委員會文件可於:
http://www.info.gov.hk/tpb/tc/papers/papers.html下載。
The Town Planning Board papers can be downloaded at http://www.info.gov.hk/tpb/en/papers/papers.html

是次邀請意見的截止期限為2013年11月27日。香港觀鳥會就這三幅草圖內大面積的鄉村地帶所帶來的影響表示關注。在2010-2011施政報告中,政府承諾保護這些不包括土地的自然景觀,但這些分區劃大綱草圖反映出政府並沒有兌現承諾。我們相信應該把這些不包括土地納入它們附近的郊野公園範圍內。

The Deadline is 27 November 2013. HKBWS is concerned about the impacts of the large village zone in these three plans.  In the 2010 Policy Address, the Government promised to protect the natural landscape of these enclaves, but these Draft OZPs fail to do so.  We believe that these enclaves should be incorporated into their surrounding country parks.  

白腊至今已記錄了52種鳥類,當中包括一些猛禽物種(白腹海鵰、蛇鵰、鳳頭鷹、普通鵟和紅隼)。
There have been 52 bird species recorded at Pak Lap so far including a number of raptors (White-bellied Sea Eagle, Crested Serpent Eagle, Crested Goshawk, Eastern Buzzard and Common Kestrel).


海下共記錄了105種鳥類。海下的天然河溪更是褐魚鴞的重要覓食場所。在現時的分區劃大綱草圖下,這些河溪將會受到水污染的影響。
At Hoi Ha, 105 bird species have been recorded and the natural stream at Hoi Ha is an important foraging place for Brown Fish Owl.  Under the Draft OZP, the stream would suffer from water pollution impacts.


冠魚狗的最後記錄是於2009年在鎖羅盆錄得。位於鎖羅盆的具重要生態價值河溪為冠魚狗提供了合適的生境。冠魚狗通常會在河堤長滿樹木的大型河溪出沒。分區計劃大綱草圖內大面積的鄉村地帶會為這重要的河溪帶來潛在的水污染影響。
The last records of Crested Kingfisher were seen at So Lo Pun back in 2009.  The Ecologically Important Stream there provides suitable habitat for this species which is usually found along large stream with wooded banks.  The large V zone of the Draft OZP would result in potential water pollution impacts to this important stream.


本會已就白腊的分區計劃大綱草圖作出回應,並會在本星期內完成餘下兩幅草圖的回應。
The Society has drafted our response to the Draft Pak Lap OZP and will continue to finalize the other two as the week progresses.  

請向城市規劃委員會表達你的關注。我們歡迎你引用本會的意見,你亦可補充自己的意見。請於http://www.info.gov.hk/tpb/tc/plan_making/draft_plan.html提交你的意見。

白腊 Pak Lap

以下是本會對白腊分區計劃大綱草圖提出的意見:
The following are the Society's comments on the Draft Pak Lap OZP:


The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society (HKBWS) would like to raise our concerns on the Draft Pak Lap Outline Zoning Plan (OZP) and propose the incorporation of Pak Lap into the Sai Kung East Country Park.  In the 2010 Policy Address, Donald Tsang promised to include Country Park enclaves into Country Parks (CPs) or determine their proper uses through statutory planning in order to meet conservation and social development needs .  However, the Draft Pak Lap OZP does not provide sufficient protection to the natural environment of Pak Lap and we would like bring your attention to the following concerns:

1.        Concerns on the Village Zone
1.1        The size of the Village (V) zone was decided based on the ten-year projection of small houses (79 more houses) at Pak Lap.  Given the condition of Pak Lap, being that there is no vehicular road access and access to the nearest road requires a 400 meter hike to Sai Kung Man Yee Road, the draft OZP has failed to take into consideration the associated road access that is necessary to allow villagers to inhabit Pak Lap conveniently, and this puts the surrounding areas of the CP at risk to illegal infrastructure development.  Already there are evidence of illegal vegetation clearance and provision of roads from Sai Kung Man Yee Road to Pak Lap.  

1.2        The individuals of Water Fern Ceratopteris thalictroides as presented in the draft OZP were found in the marsh of the proposed V zone.  Ceratopteris thalictroides is considered to be a “rare and precious plant” and due to its special habitat requirement, its area of distribution and population size are decreasing .  The V zone would not provide any protection to the Water Fern.  We urge that the marsh habitat of where the Water Fern is located to be zoned as Conservation Area (CA) so that adequate protection can be given to the marsh habitat and its associated plants, including the protection Water Fern.  The size of V zone should be reduced significantly.

1.3        We are concerned about the deterioration of water quality at Pak Lap Wan as a result of the high number of small houses in the proposed V zone.  Since the area is not equipped with public sewer, the sewage from these small houses will only be treated by on-site septic tanks and soakaway systems, the generated sewage will pollute the stream and Pak Lap Wan which is drains into.  Pak Lap Wan is where high abundance of protected amphioxus species, Branchiostoma belcheri, has been recorded .  This species is listed under class II protection in China and is the only benthic species of conservation importance in Hong Kong.  Branchiostoma belcheri is sensitive to water pollution and important habitat requirements include oceanic water of low organic content.  We are concerned that the organic content discharged in to Pak Lap Wan from the village would destroy this important habitat for B. belcheri.

2.        Concerns on the Agriculture Zone
The proposed Agriculture (AGR) zone is located in an area of young plantation species and man-made pond.  This area is hydrologically linked to the stream which drains into Pak Lap Wan.  Surface runoff from farming activities would result in the increase of organic content in the stream and Pak Lap Wan.  We believe this area should be zoned as Green Belt (GB) to prevent water quality issues and also because the GB zoning would create a suitable buffer area of appropriate size between the existing village houses and the proposed CA.  

3.        Pak Lap should be incorporated as part of the Sai Kung East Country Park
Pak Lap, and especially its secondary woodland, supports a diverse population of different fauna groups and is ecologically linked to the surrounding Sai Kung East Country Park.  High diversity of butterflies (37 species) and birds (55 species) have been recorded at Pak Lap .  This includes two uncommon butterfly species, Bush Hopper Ampittia dioscorides etura and Silver Streak Blue Iraota timoleon timolecon, and eleven bird species of conservation interest.  Pak Lap not only supports woodland and generalist birds species, it also supports protected species of ardeids, waterbirds and raptors.

To prevent further illegal habitat destruction at Pak Lap, by including it into the CP, the Country Park Ordinance under the authority of the AFCD would provide the most effective legislative protection which the Town Planning Board of the OZP would otherwise have limited control over.  Great considerations should be given to CP enclaves that are not easily accessible by people due to the lack of vehicular road access to become part of the CP boundary due to their low utilization.  These enclaves, including Pak Lap, are subject to low levels of human disturbances and thus have high potential ecological value.  The draft OZP allows opportunities for irreversible environmental damage arising from village house developments.

Thank you Sze for taking the time to do the translation into Chinese.

[以下是本會對白腊分區計劃大綱草圖提出的意見:]

[香港觀鳥會(HKBWS)對白腊分區計劃大綱草圖(下稱「草圖」,Draft Pak Lap Outline Zoning Plan, OZP)表示關注,並建議將白腊納入西貢東郊野公園範圍。在2010年施政報告中,前特首曾蔭權曾承諾將「不包括的土地」(Country Park enclaves)納入郊野公園範圍或通過法定規劃以確保這些土地被適當使用,以滿足保育及社會發展所需。可是,本會發現草圖未能對白腊的自然環境提供足夠的保護,故本會欲提出以下建議:]

1.        [對「鄉村式發展」地帶(Village Zone)的關注]

1.1 [草圖擬訂的「鄉村式發展」地帶,是以十年前在白腊的村屋數目作估算,範圍大小估計可容納超過79楝村屋。有鑒於白腊現行並沒有行車路可達,而離最近的道路亦需要步行至400米外的西貢萬宜路(Sai Kung Man Yee Road)。草圖並未有考慮到如容許超過79楝村屋的村民在白腊生活後,日後會為周邊的郊野公園地區帶來非法興建車路的潛在風險。而且有證據顯示,現已有人非法砍伐植物以擴展小路將白腊連接到西貢萬宜路。]

1.2 [在草圖擬訂的「鄉村式發展」地帶內的一片沼澤濕地有水蕨(英文名:Water Fern,學名:Ceratopteris thalictroides)的記錄。由於其特殊的生境要求,與及其分佈及族群數目正在減少,所以水蕨被列為「稀有及珍貴的植物」。而「鄉村式發展」地帶將不會為水蕨提供任何保護。故此,我們促請將水蕨位處的濕地劃為「自然保育區」(Conservation Area, CA),從而對該濕地生境和其相關的植物,包括:水蕨,給予適當的保護,並建議將「鄉村式發展」地帶的範圍大幅減少。]

1.3 [本會對擬訂的「鄉村式發展」地帶內,日後數量眾多的村屋可能令白腊灣的水質惡化表示關注。由於該地區沒有處理公共污水的設備,這些村屋所產生的家居污水將只經當地的化糞池及滲濾系統(soakaway systems)簡單處理後,污水便會流入附近的河溪,然後再流入白腊灣造成污染。白腊灣曾有大量白氏文昌魚(學名:Branchiostoma belcheri)的記錄。白氏文昌魚是中國國家二級保護動物,並且是香港唯一一種具存護價值的底棲生物(benthic species)。白氏文昌魚對水污染非常敏感,生活的海水只可含非常低量的有機物。我們對「鄉村式發展」地帶日後帶來的有機污染物有可能破壞白氏文昌魚這個重要棲息地表示關注。]

2. [關於擬訂的「農業」地帶(Agriculture Zone)]

[草圖擬將一個較新的植林區及人工池塘訂為「農業」地帶。這區跟流入白腊灣的河流有密切的水文關係。當農業活動令這區的表土流失後將會導致白腊灣及相連河流內的有機物增加。本會建議將此區劃為「綠化地帶」以防止河流水質污染及為現存的村屋與「自然保育區」之間提供適合大小的緩衝區。]

3. 白腊應納入西貢東郊野公園範圍]

[白腊,特別是其次生林(secondary woodland),支援多種不同動物群落的生存,與周邊的西貢東郊野公園在生態上有密切關係。白腊有多個不同品種的蝴蝶 (37 物種)和鳥類(55 物種)的記錄。當中包括兩個罕見的蝴蝶品種:黃斑弄蝶(英文名:Bush Hopper。學名:Ampittia dioscorides etura)和鐵木萊異灰蝶(英文名:Silver Streak Blue,學名:Iraota timoleon timolecon),與及十一種保育關注鳥類。白腊不僅支援林地和一般常見鳥類品種,它還支援某些受保護鷺鳥、水鳥及猛禽。]

[為了防止白腊的生境進一步被非法破壞,將其納入郊野公園範圍,會遠較以城市規劃委員會的分區計畫大綱草圖作土地規劃管理,有更大的主動管理權,因漁農自然護署可根據《郊野公園條例》對白腊提供最有效的法例保護。由於大部分「不包括的土地」均缺乏行車路故人跡罕至,有鑑於其低發展性,故此應考慮將其納入郊野公園範圍。這些包括白腊等「不包括的土地」,較少受人為干擾,因而具有高潛在生態價值,但草圖擬訂的土地規劃建議將有機會導致由村屋帶來不可逆轉的環境破壞。]
