North East New Territories New Development Areas Planning

In 2007 the “Hong Kong 2030: Planning Vision and Strategy” [1] took place the strategic planning in New Territories to address long-term housing demands[2] of New Development Areas (NDAs) Kwu Tung North (KTL) and Fanling North (FLN). In 2008 “The North East New Development Areas Planning and Engineering Study” began; it continued until 2013.[3] There were four primary objectives: determine strategic roles of the NDAs, build people-oriented communities, create sustainable living environments, and develop appropriate implementation mechanisms.[4] Industries such as special industries, research & development, creative industry, business, education, and medical care were emphasized in the developmental project.[5] The project was controversial with opponents questioning the need and intention of the project, zoning areas, compensation, and environmental preservation[6]. The latest revision of NENT was passed by the Executive Council in 2013[7] and was passed by the Legislative Council for Budget approval in 2014.[8]
