Urban Renewal

89. Last year, for the first time, the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) introduced a holistic and district-based approach for implementing its redevelopment projects in To Kwa Wan, so as to raise the quality of the environment and improve the road networks by enhancing the overall planning for the community. While undertaking redevelopment, we must also explore effective ways of addressing the problem of ageing building stock. The URA plans to conduct a district planning study for Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok on a pilot basis. The study aims to explore how to enhance the efficiency of existing land use and redevelopment potential of these districts. At the same time, the URA will also conduct a study on building rehabilitation strategies to formulate appropriate and sustainable measures to prolong the life span of the buildings and explore the feasibility of “retrofitting” as a proposal for building rehabilitation.
