Enforcement against the Misuse of Industrial Buildings

124. The Buildings Department and the Lands Department will continue to take risk-based actions to address safety concerns for industrial buildings arising from non-compliance with or breaches of lease conditions.

125. Meanwhile, the Government will actively consider introducing new legislation to step up the enforcement efforts of the Buildings Department on different fronts to combat the problem of illegal domestic units in industrial buildings. We aim to consult the LegCo on the specific proposals in this legislative session.

126. The Buildings Department will continue to take enforcement action against illegal subdivided units in industrial and residential buildings, including issuing removal orders to owners in respect of unauthorised building works and applying for closure orders from the court when necessary.
