2007-08 Policy Address:
(10) New Development Areas (NDAs):
To ease pressure on developed areas and to meet the demand for land arising from population growth, we need to plan for NDAs without delay. The scope of NDAs will be smaller, less than one fourth of that of the existing new towns such as Tuen Mun and Sha Tin. The NDAs will provide land for various uses such as housing, employment, high value-added and non-polluting industries. Through comprehensive planning, the NDAs will provide quality living space and convenience to both residents and users. In this connection, we will revive planning and engineering studies on NDAs at Kwu Tung North, Fanling North, Ping Che and Ta Kwu Ling and Hung Shui Kiu, and work out implementation strategies.
