Long-term Planning — “Hong Kong 2030+”
104. As our population and the number of households
continue to grow, the community has higher aspirations for
better living space and environment, the demand for land is ever
increasing. The improvement in cross-boundary transport also
enhances interactions between Hong Kong and the Pearl River
Delta in land use matters. As such, we must undertake long-term
and holistic planning.
105. The Government has commenced the “Hong Kong 2030+:
Towards a Planning Vision and Strategy Transcending 2030”
(“Hong Kong 2030+”) planning study and is carrying out public
106. The Planning Department estimates that at least 4 800
hectares of land is required up to 2046. Even if all the on-going
short, medium and long-term land supply initiatives are timely
implemented in full, we will still need to identify at least another
1 200 hectares of land.
