Government posts land resumption notices for subsidised housing developments

The Lands Department (LandsD) today (June 9) posted land resumption notices in accordance with section 4 of the Lands Resumption Ordinance (Chapter 124) for implementation of subsidised housing developments.  

The respective locations of the land parcels are as follows:

(i) San Wan Road near Wong Kong Shan in Fanling;
(ii) Shap Pat Heung Road near Lung Tin Tsuen in Yuen Long; and
(iii) Junction of Yuen Lung Street and Yau Tin East Road in Yuen Long.

Thirty private lots with a total area of about 1.12 hectares will be resumed by the Government. The land will revert to the Government upon the expiry of a period of three months from the date of affixing the notices (i.e. September 10, 2022). The LandsD will immediately arrange handover of the resumed land and the adjoining government land to the implementation agents for subsidised housing developments.

The three land parcels were the result of a review announced by the Development Bureau in May 2021 on private land zoned for high-density housing development, which was one of the measures announced by the Chief Executive to intensify Government-led planning and land resumption efforts.

The Government will maintain close liaison with the relevant land owners and affected parties and properly handle their compensation and rehousing matters. 

The subsidised housing developments at the above locations will provide a total of about 1 660 residential units with the earliest population intake anticipated to be from 2027 and 2028.
