Green Groups’ joint response to “Sustainable Lantau Blueprint” released by the Government on 3 June 2017 via www.lantau.gov.hk

The letter begins with this 1st point:

  1. The undersigned green groups are deeply concerned over the proposed “Sustainable Lantau Blueprint” (the Blueprint) released by the Government on 3 June, 2017. Although the Blueprint has a planning vision of ‘balancing development and conservation’, it seems to continue the approach of “Space for All” launched in January 2016 which is a development-orientated proposal. We regret that the Blueprint still fails to provide adequate protection and conservation of important sites and habitats on Lantau. We reiterate that conservation should be the planning premise for Lantau before any developments is proposed.
