Nov 25: Public Meeting

i Nov 9th No Comments by

Dear Friends,

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) has organised a meeting for residents of South Lantau to discuss their concerns about the proposed Shek Kwu Chau Super-Incinerator at a public meeting at Pui O Public School on Friday, November 25 from 6 pm to 8 pm.

This meeting has been called as a result of the many objections that were received in response to the notice issued on April 29, 2011 of the proposed dredging and reclamation for building the artificial island for the incinerator off Shek Kwu Chau (directly facing Tong Fuk, Cheung Sha and Pui O beaches), and for the under-sea cabling that would be required to connect the proposed incinerator with the electricity grid in Cheung Sha.

  • Date: Friday, November 25, 2011
  • Time: 6-8 pm
  • Venue: Pui O (Bui O) Public School, Pui O

This meeting is the very first time that we, the people who will be most directly affected by this totally misconceived ‘solution’ to Hong Kong’s entire waste management problem, have the opportunity to publicly voice our concerns.

We urge you – and your friends, neighbours and colleagues — to attend this meeting. So please forward this email to anyone who might be concerned about the potential transportation and incineration of ALL of Hong Kong’s rubbish to an artificial island just off the beautiful South Lantau coast.

The application to start the dredging for the land reclamation and cabling is the thin end of the wedge. If that assent is in place, the location of a super-incinerator for all of Hong Kong’s waste in the pristine neighbourhood of South Lantau becomes one step closer to being a certainty.

The EPD has requested that attendees complete this registration form [ EPD Pui O meeting form ] to signal attendance at the consultation meeting on November 25. Please send the completed form by November 21 by fax to 2591-0636 or by e-mail to: dereklui@epd.gov.hk
