Programme Highlight

To cope with the population growth and meet the huge housing needs, nine New Towns were developed in Hong Kong between 1970s to 1990s.  This helped decentralize the overcrowded population in urban areas and supported the economic growth of Hong Kong.  Ever since then, development of New Towns has been shelved until the development of North East New Territories New Development Areas (NDAs) was brought on board in 2007.  NDA projects in the New Territories, including the Kwu Tung North and Fanling North NDA (“the Project”), form a core part of government’s multi-pronged land supply strategy in the medium and long term.  After more than 10 years of planning, consultation and preparation, the Project has finally proceeded to the construction stage in September 2019.  A new chapter of developing new towns has begun.  This seminar will share the background and challenges of delivering the Project.
