The Changing Shape of Hong Kong - Reclamation (20 Jan 2012)


There’s an old piece of advice that goes something like: “Buy land. God isn’t making any more of it.” Well, Hong Kong has a particular problem with lack of land for development. And even if God isn’t making any more of it, the government has decided that IT needs to. Some of its plans for creating new land are currently open to public consultation.The government has suggested 25 possible reclamation sites, which it hopes the public exercise, and other strategies, will help it whittle down to around ten.With us in the studio to give their views on the proposals are Albert Lai of the Hong Kong Conservancy Association, Paul Zimmerman of Designing Hong Kong, and Hung Wing-tat of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.。
