3rd Runway Concerns
有關機場擴建第三條跑道

Currently Hong Kong has over 80% of the international flights out of the Pearl River Delta. With the 3rd Runway proponents hope to maintain a large share of this growing market. But with only 7% of the population and manufacturing moving ever further land inwards, how sensible is that? The economic gains benefit a few, while the rest of the community pays. It is not just the money: Air pollution, noise, loss of marine habitat, and traffic – lots of it.

現在香港肩負珠角三角洲80%的國際航班,市場不斷擴大,機管局希望藉著擴建來增加利潤。但我們只有7%的人口,而本地工業持續北移,代表著甚麼?我們只有少數人受惠,所有卻為此而負上沉重的代價:空氣污染、噪音、失去海洋生態、交通流量大增……甚至更多

Review on Berthing and Sheltered Space
檢討船隻停泊處及避風泊位

Although the Town Planning Board saw the merit of a public marina in Pak Shek Kok, the application was rejected in the absence of a Government bureau providing policy support. The minutes can be downloaded here.

Fortunately, the policy on supply of supporting facilities for the berthing of vessels is now the subject of a study to be overseen by the Marine Department and the Transport and Housing Bureau.

雖然城規會認同於白石角興建公共海事設施中心的好處,但是由於缺乏局方提供政策扶持,最終規劃申請不被接納。歡迎下載有關會議記錄。幸好海事處和運輸及房屋局現時正在檢討船隻泊位設施及相關政策。

新聞稿:中環解放軍碼頭的「雙贏」解決方案
Press release:Solution for PLA Pier in Central “Win-Win”

新聞稿 – 2013年10月23日

中環解放軍碼頭的「雙贏」解決方案

政府建議將中環海濱其中一塊面積為2,970平方米的用地改劃為軍事用途。創建香港建議將永久交予解放軍作軍事用地的面積減少至220平方米,包括現有的設施如閘口、辦公室和洗手間。

創建香港行政總裁司馬文在回應傳媒查詢時解釋:

「把中環海濱長廊的大片土地改劃為軍事用途將引起一些香港法律的執行問題。在沒有軍艦停泊的時間,解放軍碼頭將開放予公眾,屆時如何管理該片土地將是一個問題。」

「將軍事用途限制於碼頭的主要設施內,可以確保軍用設施不受海濱長廊的管理影響。碼頭範圍及通道可根據公安條例(第245章第36條)不開放予公眾,同樣,在有軍艦停泊時可根據船舶及港口管制條例(第313A章)將附近的海面封鎖。」

有關解放軍碼頭的圖片請參閱主場新聞博客司馬文的撰文:

數以千計反對將中環海濱改劃為解放軍碼頭的人士將於2013年11月至12月向城規會發表意見。
