Message from PDD Chairman (July 2020)

TVB News Magazine Programme: 「鬧市綠洲?」

On 27 June, Sr Francis Lam appeared on the TVB News Magazine Programme – 「鬧市綠洲?」, to share on his thoughts on public open spaces in Hong Kong. The show discussed the poor quality and quantity of public open spaces in Hong Kong’s urban areas, especially in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po, which are two of the city’s oldest districts. Francis opined that piecemeal redevelopment of the old districts mostly failed to establish a comprehensive open space network. Even the current Hong Kong Planning Standards and Guidelines do not recommend that high quality public open spaces be provided.
