Dear Members and Friends
The Legislators are listening!
Your voice is being heard and is making a difference. Now you have another chance to express your views on the proposed landfill extensions and the building of the Super Incinerator near Shek Kwu Chau. The next meeting of the Panel on Environmental Affairs will be open to the public, and is therefore a great opportunity to tell them your opinions regarding the EPD proposals.
If you wish to speak at the meeting, you must submit your request ASAP to speak and/or make a submission on Saturday 22 March. Details can be found at
The reply slip on the website is for organizations. Here is a reply slip for individuals.
The entire process is at a very critical stage with respect to the future of Hong Kong’s Waste management plans that will affect HK people for many decades. Below is a brief update to help with your submission to the Government, though the key message in this email is “Book your place to make a submission on Saturday 22 March”.
You can submit your written statement after you register your speaking place and during the presentation you will not be asked any questions. Each participant will have just 3 minutes to speak.
We will send a list of possible items to raise along with the LIM submission in a couple of days.
We will be following the direction of our letter that was sent to the Panel on Environmental Affairs for their meeting held on 24 February.
A short summary and important dates:
It is worth noting that with or without the support of the EA Panel or the Public Works Committee the Secretary for the Environment can legally go directly to the Finance Committee to request funding for the Landfill Extensions and the building of the Super Incinerator near Shek Kwu Chau.
LIM urges you to continue to make your voice heard, so please submit your request ASAP to speak and/or make a submission on Sat 22 March
