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。

關注東涌發展的組織包括: 創建香港、生態教育及資源中心、綠色力量、香港觀鳥會、Hong Kong Outdoors、大嶼山愛護水牛協會、長春社、世界自然(香港)基金會

 

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.

聯署支持電車行人專用區 Petition to support DVRC rezoning

現時港鐵港島區西線經已通車,未來數年沙中線及中環灣仔繞道亦會落成,正好提供一個契機設立電車及行人專區。藉著交通路線重組,可以改善中區多年交通擠塞及空氣污染等問題。

創建香港、健康空氣行動、長春社及香港地球之友,向城規會遞交改劃申請。方案提出,在德輔道中中心保留一條通道,讓環保交通工具如巴士和電車行駛。與德輔道中垂直的永和街、祖庇利街、砵甸乍街和畢打街等交通不受影響,讓汽車可以接連皇后大道中和干諾道中。

城規會現正邀請公眾就改劃提交意見,截止日期是2015年10月16日。
請即加入我們的聯署並支持改劃,讓德輔道中成為一個無污染、無擠塞的公共空間!

Where can I sit?

missingseats_juGdO_1200x0_ojOPq_1200x0

If you want people to walk, you got to make sure they can sit. At first glance this appears a contradiction, but walkable cities need many places for people to sit.
People and especially elderly are willing to walk further and forego a vehicular trip if they know there is a place to rest half way. It also makes the city friendlier.

Well placed public seats allow people to relax. It creates opportunities for incidental encounters which are important for community building. It makes the city more accessible for people with disabilities.

So how far are you willing to walk? Ever wondered why there are not more seats around our city in public areas?

Dear Chairman and Members,
