With millions of dollars dancing in their eyes, developers keep trying it on. Twenty years ago, according to campaigner Carol Ho, a bunch of dodgy customers asked the Town Planning Board for permission to open “a field study centre with garden and picnic area” near Nam Pin Road, Ho Chung. This was rejected by the board.
Carol says DD224 Lot227 is designated as a conservation area, so the land clearing is illegal. She has appealed to the Lands Department to launch a prosecution.
