Proposals to streamline development-related statutory processes reduce credibility of land system

Recently, the Government’s proposal to streamline development-related statutory processes were put in the agenda of the meeting of Legislative Council Panel on Development scheduled on 22 March. It involves six ordinances with an ultimate aim “to make the supply of land available for development in a more expeditious manner, now and in future, where it is needed”. The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society (HKBWS) would like to express our views on the proposal, particularly items related to the Town Planning Ordinance (TPO) (Cap.131), Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO) (Cap.499) and Waste Disposal Ordinance (WDO) (Cap. 354), regarding the potential significant impacts on nature conservation in Hong Kong.
