Long Keng Saga -

From Save Long Keng https://www.facebook.com/Save.LongKeng - A video documenting the abuse of Hong Kong's Small House Policy. Greed, corruption and illegal land development leading to the destruction of a once beautiful area of the New Territories - as those responsible remain unpunished by the authorities.

Sai Kung transport woes continue....

From 關注西貢規劃陣線 Sai Kung Planning Concern Front - SPCF

雖然大家每天都在抱怨交通問題越來越嚴重,但是運輸署在過去的規劃申請裏從來沒有表達意見。當政府其他部門都會就規劃的各方面提出問題(比如說環保、噪音、渠務、水務、煤氣等等),我們認為運輸署也應該檢視規劃申請對交通帶來的影響,並提出各種潛在問題與風險。
我們希望大家能夠一人一信,把你的交通問題經驗寫下來,寄給運輸署,要求他們就各個西貢規劃的交通問題表達意見!!

Although most Sai Kung residents are complaining traffic issues everyday, Transport Department never express their concern on Town Planning Board. While other departments will raise questions on various aspect (e.g. environment, noise, sewerage, gas etc.), we believe TD should also examine and voice out the potential risk and problems brought by the planning application.
Please join our one-resident-one-letter campaign, write down your personal experience of traffic issues in Sai Kung and send to Town Planning Board to urge the Transport Department to respond those problems on Sai Kung planning application!!

Save Our Country Parks - Help Required

Save Our Country Parks is arranging for a head count of folks going into our Country Parks on Sunday 13 December between 8 – 12 midday. 
FSK members are invited to pencil the event into their diaries and a) volunteer to join the roster which will man the table at the Pak Tam Chung barrier, and b) remind members to make a point of visiting a Country Park on that day and displaying photos/selfies on their Facebooks. We are hoping that there will be postings by people throughout December on personal and Group Facebook pages.

SOCP will arrange for delivery of a pack – a SOCP flag, sign-up sheets for a head count, and a SOCP foam board and picture frame that visitors can use as a prop for their selfies.

In Sai Kung, we need volunteers to help at the Pak Tam Cheung Barrier table with the headcount. If you can help - please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Thanks FSK Committee.

Save Lugard Road Now 立即拯救盧吉道

A third public consultation on hotel at Lugard Road - we need you to act
 
盧吉道建酒店第三次咨詢:需要您馬上行動 
 
 
Dear friends of ABHK,

Thanks to your help we have been able to keep up the pressure against the development of a hotel at 27 Lugard Road. As you may know the developer submitted a fresh application in November 2014 responding to some of the public's objections and there was a public consultation. 827 people sent in their comments by the 2 December 2014 deadline.

Now the developer has tweaked the plans further and the Town Planning Board is having a third public consultation on the tweaked plans!

The aim, as far as we can see, is to exhaust the public and reduce the number of responses to public consultations. We can't allow that to happen and need to you to pls email the Town Planning Board to oppose this plan yet again. The deadline for sending in your comments to the Town Planning Board is30 January.
