Public Forum: Mechanisms to Unleash Development Potential of Privately Owned Land in the New Territories

August 18, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Due to various land management and historical problems, development rights of more than 4,000 ha privately owned land in the New Territories have been held up in the past decades.  This public forum aims to explore some possible fair and transparent mechanisms to unleash the development potentials in the New Territories.




Invited speakers and participants will discuss, inter alia, two institutional innovations namely “land readjustment” and “land bonds”.  Comments received in the public forum will form an integral part of a report to be submitted to the Task Force on Land Supply.
