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?

Object to small house developments in Tai Long Wan
反對大浪灣丁屋申請

Ham Tin overlay 3



Dear Chairman and Members,
致城市規劃委員會主席及各委員:


I object to planning permission for the development of five houses as this will impact the natural and cultural heritage of Tai Long Wan, and contravene the planning intention as agreed under the Outline Zoning Plan for Tai Long Wan (S/SK-TLW/5).

Petition to save Hong Kong Park
一人一信反對破壞香港公園

The government plans to spend 750 million dollars to relocate the Harcourt Road fresh water pumping station to Hong Kong Park. The construction will result in the removal of a wooded slope at Hong Kong Park and felling of 118 trees. It would impact 2,150 square meters of park space, and major sections of the 150 year old squared rubble defensive wall at Flagstaff House heritage site.

Please sign the below petition now.

政府建議耗資7.5億元,將夏愨道食水抽水站遷往香港公園範圍內一處斜坡,政府解釋該抽水站用地將改作商業樓宇發展。然而,於香港公園建造新的抽水站,將削去園內部分斜坡範圍,影響香港公園範圍內的一段有150年歷史的古老石牆。計劃亦會令園內受重置工程影響的118棵樹木被砍伐,並將公園空間減少2,150平方米。

The right harbour authority, otherwise we’ll be better off without
要就要對的海濱管理局 否則唔要罷就

 

The Government is consulting the public on the setting up of a Harbourfront Authority but both the digest and response form fail to address key concerns. These include a lack of oversight over the harbour as a whole; the lack of advisory powers over Government departments; a lack of legitimacy in land allocation; bias towards commercial operations; and a loss of the public voice on the Board.
政府正就設立海濱管理局諮詢公眾,然而其諮詢摘要回應表格均忽略了箇中關鍵──譬如欠缺對海港的整全視野;政府部門欠諮詢權力;土地分配欠合法性;對商業操作的偏見;及董事會內無公眾聲音。

Since 2004, Designing Hong Kong has called for an authority to create world class waterfronts. Now the shortcomings need to be resolved before the community and legislators support the proposal.
2004年始,創建香港便一直爭取一個獨立的政府權力架構以創造世界級的海濱。事到如今,當務之急是要趁社會和立法會議員支持計劃前,解決其中的問題。
