Policy Address 2020: Controversial HK$624 billion Lantau Tomorrow housing project to go ahead


Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the government will not give up on the controversial Lantau Tomorrow Vision housing project, and relevant studies for the HK$624 billion development should begin as soon as possible.

In her fourth policy address on Wednesday, Lam said the artificial islands project – 70 per cent of which promises to be public housing – would be more effective in alleviating medium-term and long-term housing needs than changing land use zoning in existing urban areas.

She said the project aimed to develop a liveable and carbon-neutral community, and has already been discussed in society: “Lantau Tomorrow originates from the East Lantau reclamation project that was proposed in 2011. Discussions have been brewing in Hong Kong society for almost ten years. We should not waste any more time,” she said.
