Below is the general background of the current Public Engagement on Land Supply.





The Task Force on Land Supply (the Task Force) was established by the Government last year, and on 26 April 2018 the Task Force announced a five-month public consultation on 18 land supply options. However, the public consultation document is similar to the Government’s "Hong Kong 2030+: Towards a Planning Vision and Strategy Transcending 2030" in simplifying Hong Kong’s problem of “pricy, tiny and cramped” housing and blame it on land shortage. Other critical factors, such as Hong Kong’s uneven distribution of resources, population policy and economic structure, were not mentioned for discussion. It failed to identify the real causes of the current social problems and provide corresponding solutions, but instead, it directs the public to support land development. The land supply options include ecologically sensitive areas and specifically mention developing land in Country Parks and even reservoirs. Even more shocking, the Chief Executive has irresponsibly stirred up conflict by blaming green groups who object to reclamation for denying housing to children living in extremely poor living condition (link: ... -kongs-needy-may-be). It reveals her attempt to put the two in a contradictory state that does not really exist.

Land supply is closely related to all our daily lives and our next generations, the Society thus hopes everyone would take time to understand the current public consultation. Before submitting your comments on the consultation document and your thoughts on the future development of Hong Kong, you are strongly recommended to go through not only the papers published by the government, but as well by the local concern groups. We will carefully study the relevant documents as well and share our thoughts later.
