搬入油麻地前要知清楚的事 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE MOVING INTO YAU MA TEI
Yau Ma Tei has a concentration of South Asian residents. Back in 2016, shots were fired by the police to stop violent conflicts among South Asians in the neighbourhood, which led to concerns over the safety and security of the area. However, many local residents think the South Asians are polite and friendly, and being neighbours with them has never been a problem.
Residential buildings in Yau Ma Tei tend to have lower floor area ratios due to regulations, but it's possible for more buildings to be deregulated in the future, which will allow developers to purchase old buildings and redevelop them to expand housing supply. Such redevelopments will normally alter the general environment, including views and traffic, in the surrounding areas.
Yau Ma Tei belongs to primary school nets No.31 and 32, which include Yaumati Catholic Primary School, St. Mary's Canossian School, Tong Mei Road Government Primary School, and Methodist School. Its secondary school net belongs to the Yau Tsim Mong District, which includes Diocesan Girls' School, Wah Yan College Kowloon, True Light Girls' College, and St. Francis Xavier's College, among others.
