The Secretary for Development, Mr Michael Wong, visited Kwai Tsing District this afternoon (February 18) to learn more about the latest developments and needs of the community. He also met with local District Council members to exchange views on district matters.
Accompanied by the Chairman of the Kwai Tsing District Council, Mr Law King-shing, and the District Officer (Kwai Tsing), Mr Kenneth Cheng, Mr Wong first called at Cheung Ching Estate in Tsing Yi to gain a better understanding of the proposed future planning and development plan for Ching Hong Road North and its adjoining areas. This includes a public housing development, reprovisioning of the Cheung Ching Community Centre, and exploring the "single site, multiple use" model for multi-storey developments on government land to provide more community facilities and make optimal use of land resources.
He then proceeded to the Pok Oi Hospital Dental Service Support Base in Cheung Ching Community Centre. He toured the facilities of the Support Base and chatted with elderly people there to learn about their daily lives and needs.
Before concluding his visit, Mr Wong met with members of the Kwai Tsing District Council to listen to their views and suggestions on the work of the Government. They also exchanged views on issues of concern to local residents.
