CIVIC DEBATES


presents


This house believes that

the current system of securing
public open space and public passage
within and over private property
is a failure.


Hong Kong lacks open space in the urban areas which can be enjoyed by the public and traffic demands have outgrown our narrow streets.
Government's solution has been to meet these needs through agreements with landowners which permit the public use of parts of their property.
Problems arising from these agreements have been in the news recently.
Has Government's solution failed or is it the best system in the circumstances?
Come and hear this issue debated.
