Development of Lantau
101. The blueprint for Lantau’s development and conservation
will be published in the first half of this year. The direction will
be “development for the north, conservation for the south”. North
Lantau will be for economic and housing developments,
including the Airport North Commercial District, Tung Chung
New Town, the topside of the boundary crossing of the HZMB
and Siu Ho Wan. Northeast Lantau will be developed into an
area for leisure, entertainment and tourism through reclamation
in Sunny Bay, complemented by Hong Kong Disneyland. Most of
the remaining areas in Lantau will be used for conservation,
leisure, cultural and eco-tourism purposes.
102. The AA’s SKYCITY development project occupies over 25
hectares, and will become a dedicated area for hotel, retail,
dining and entertainment.
103. The boundary crossing facilities island of the HZMB can
provide a floor area of 500 000 square metres for economic uses.
The community will be consulted on this in the first half of this
