    New land supply task force - will it work

    https://www.news.gov.hk/en/categorie...ickList=ticker

    It appears to be focused on finding 'new' land.

    The current lack of
    - Transparency of what is actually available
    - Who decides how much gets released and when
    - Mechanisms for upgrading old housing stock (you must sell to a property developer) or get a bad deal from the URA

    will not be looked at.

    Only 27 per cent of people aged 18 to 24 intended to buy a flat, down from 55 per cent in 2006, a survey of 800 respondents by the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups found last November.

    Yeah right, they're all from a tight-knit group and will easily come to a consensus about where they want to develop! And that's definitely not on politically challenging brownfield sites!

    Folks - the SCMP inadvertently published the plan from Beijing in an article back in 2013. (2 September 2013 to be precise) This is what's coming, the only question is how long it takes. Look closely at the HK land mass...

    In all seriousness it looks like a talking shop to create a new list of improbably land supply options that will distract everyone fro focusing on the large land banks already existing, Empty investment flats, how to invigorate private led (rather developer led) regeneration.

    Looking forward to more distractionary and improbably proposals of

    - Filling in Plover Cove
    - Using the Golf course
    - Using private members land
    - Football training grounds
    - Edges of country parks
    - New Islands off Lantau

    Just remember when you hear this nonsense it is to stop the Pan Dems from focusing on real solutions. Luckliy the Pan Dems are not the sharpest politicians who are terrified of having their own policy but love opposing things so fall for it every time.

    That is more likely just to be sloppy workmanship.

    The EU yearbook a few years ago made light of some regions

    Really? You "sloppily" just happen to fill in Victoria Harbour and happen to build a land bridge to Lantau that is obviously an extended version of the East Lantau Metropolis?

    I wish I could believe that.

    Floating offshore communities could be answer to Hong Kong’s land and housing crisis | South China Morning Post

    More distractonary nonsense from members of a publically appointed body to look at land supply in Hong Kong.

    Was reading some fringe info on how well Dubai has been doing with its various island developments.

    Working out really well for the Kingdom.
