The plain is formerly a
vast area of arable land and wetland, part of which has been developed into a
new town and 「village houses」, including some brownfield. Brownfield
refers to agricultural land that has been abandoned or damaged. The Local Research
Group, a non-governmental organization, estimated in 2016 that there were 1,192
hectares of brownfield land in Hong Kong turned into storage centre, recycling
plant, container yard, parking lots etc.
The country park is an important treasure of Hong Kong. It has long served a number of important functions, including providing recreational and tourist resources, regulating the climate, protecting water resources and conserving the natural ecology.If we make rash development of country parks for housing, the damage will be irreversible.
we properly plan and make good use of land to solve the “land shortage” problem in Hong Kong so as to
maintain the quality of a livable city?
