1月29日我在出席公聽會前，與 東涌人Tung Chung Future 一同將居民簽名交予城規會，而親身出席公聽會的，連我在共內有六位人士，同樣全部持反對意見。提出的意見涵蓋多個方面，包括對附近環境、景觀、通風、交通等等的影響；亦有提到社福機構、學校、運動場等民生設施不足的問題。
The MTR Corporation submitted a proposal to the Town Planning Board(TPB), planning to transform the substation next to Tung Chung North Park into three residential buildings, the height of those buildings are similar to Caribbean Coast. In the community, I have collected more than 200 objection signatures. In this consultation, TPB also received a total of 70 representations, and all of they held objections.
Before the public hearing on 29th Jan, I and the Chairman of Tung Chung Future hand over the residents’ signatures to TPB. Six people including me were present in the public hearing, all of as hold objections. The opinions cover many aspects, including the impact on the nearby environment, ventilation, traffic, etc.; there are also issues of insufficient facilities such as social welfare institutions, schools, and sports fields.
Unfortunately, TPB refused to accept the objections of the public after discussion. TPB decided accept the MTR proposal, and submitted the plan to the Chief Executive in Council for approval.
