東涌河流自然公園計劃 Tung Chung River Nature Park Proposal

數個關注東涌發展的組織已向政府提議沿東涌河和河口設立河流自然公園。計劃希望政府能收購沿東涌河的私人土地。這些私人土地,根據規劃署2014年公佈的東涌新巿鎮建議發展大綱圖,大部份會劃作自然保育區和海岸保護區。

收購方案建基於公眾利益,希望能達致東涌河防洪和保育的目的。我們更建議以防洪為優先的準則下,於東涌河流自然公園設立公眾休閒設施,享受自然環境。

我們相信此計劃能為土地持有人、本地居民和遊客帶來益處。河流自然公園既能為東涌日漸增加的人口,提供高質素的自然環境,又能保護當地社區免受洪水威脅。

An alliance of concern groups has submitted a proposal to Government for a River Nature Park covering the Tung Chung River and Estuary.

The proposal is for Government to resume the private land along the Tung Chung River, most of which will be zoned for conservation and coastal protection uses according to the Tung Chung New Town Recommended Outline Development Plan published by the Planning Department in 2014.

It is proposed that the land is resumed for public purposes including flood control andnature conservation. We further propose that the Tung Chung River Nature Park will be managed as a public amenity for leisure, recreation and appreciation of nature, as well as for flood hydraulics.

We believe this proposal will benefit land owners, as well as local residents and visitors. The park will provide a quality nature experience for the growing population of Tung Chung and for visitors, while protecting the community from flooding.
