Director of Planning, Town Planning Board,
Cha Kwo Ling Park in Kwun Tong is the last site within Victoria Harbour that can be developed into a harbourfront park. Back in 2006 this site was reserved for future Cha Kwo Ling Park by the Government, upon the completion of construction projects in the area. But now VTC has applied to Town Planning Board to change the land use in the OZP for a campus. This quality and vibrant waterfront site should be for the enjoyment of all citizens. But now once the land use is changed, it is irreversible. This open space on the harbourfront will be lost forever. There are numerous abandoned school sites in Hong Kong. It is not necessary for VTC to put a campus on waterfront. The Government should well utilize the 183 abandoned school sites, to meet the demands of different interests.
