In Welcome to the Forum
On a hot day, the new Secretary for the Environment was sitting in an air-conditioned room and delivered a shocking piece of news. The Government is studying the redefinition of the wetland conservation area in Hong Kong, which is more advanced than the earlier talk of "relaxing the development density of wetlands". In March last year, the Development job email list Bureau Former Secretary Wong Wai-lun Chung said that "there is no plan to conduct a review of the existing "wetland conservation area"  . Today, even the boundaries of conservation/buffer zones in the entire region are being reburied. If you condone the development of more wetlands that can regulate the temperature of the city, how much hotter do you think Hong Kong will be? The new Secretary mentioned that "the marginal land can be released and developed rapidly" in the Ming Wetland area. As soon as he said this, he actually encouraged the tight landowners to accelerate the destruction of the wetland in the area, waiting for the canal to be removed for wetland conservation/buffering. constraints? Xie Zhanhuan said that the various development projects in the past have been controversial because of the "enclosure-style conservation" in the past. This concept is really unique. In fact, over the years, only the development business district-style has continuously invaded the wetland environment, and has been designated as a conservation area. Districts can be called "enclosures" casually, it's really a god-level creation.
