Co-use of the Central Harbourfront 共同使用中環海濱

Designing Hong Kong, on behalf of the Central Harbourfront Concern group, has submitted a fresh proposal to rezone the majority of the Central Military Dock to Open Space.

Once approved, only the built structures and landing steps will remain permanently under military control. The 150 meter long promenade will be open to the public under the Pleasure Ground Regulations Ordinance managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

Our rezoning application under section 12 (a) of the Town Planning Ordinance ensures the Government can manage the majority of the site as a public open space together with the rest of the central waterfront. The gate houses, control room and landing steps will remain under the management and maintenance by the PLA. When a vessel is berthed in Central for flag-day or other purposes, the area can be closed under the Public Order Ordinance.

There is no military need for the Central Military Dock to be permanently handed over to the PLA. The military has a large and secure military dock at Stonecutters which is fully equipped for vessel maintenance and service. The Central Military Dock is primarily for ceremonial purposes. In the extreme situation of a war or other military need, the entire waterfront of Hong Kong Island can be sequestered by the PLA at short notice.

創建香港代表中環海濱關注組,提出了一項土地用途改劃建議,把大部分的軍事碼頭改劃為休憩用地。現有的建構物和著陸設施均會永久保留,並由軍方監管。

一旦改劃建議獲批准,現有的構建物和登陸設施等將由中國人民解放軍管理。約150米長的長廊將可根據「遊樂場地條例」條例向公眾開放,並由康樂及文化事務管理署管理。

我們根據「城市規劃條例」12(a)進行改劃申請,希望確保香港政府能把已改劃的軍事用地與海濱的其餘部分一併管理。現有的警衛室、控制室和登陸設施等將由中國人民解放軍管理及維修。當船隻於特別日子(如國慶)需要在中環海濱靠岸時,軍方可根據「公安條例」關閉該區域作特別用途。

事實上,軍方並無需要永久接管中環軍用碼頭。軍方於昂船洲已有一個龐大而安全,並且配備船隻維修保養服務等的軍用碼頭。中環的軍用碼頭主要作儀式用途。況且如香港處於戰爭狀態或有強烈的軍事需要,解放軍亦能在短時間內封鎖香港島的海濱長廊作軍事用途。
