Greening Master Plan
Objective of Greening Master Plan (GMP)

Taking into account the local characteristics and public aspirations, a GMP seeks to define the overall greening framework of a district, and serves as a guide for all parties involved in planning, design and implementation of greening works. In addition to identifying suitable locations for planting, the GMP will establish the greening themes and propose suitable planting species.

GMPs for the New Territories

We are developing GMPs for the New Territories (NT). Development of GMP for Southeast NT (Sha Tin and Sai Kung Districts) and Northwest NT (Tuen Mun and Yuen Long Districts) commenced in May 2011. Development of GMP for remaining NT regions, which includes Southwest NT (Tsuen Wan, Kwai Tsing and Islands Districts) and Northeast NT (Tai Po and North Districts) commenced in February 2012. In view of the extensive geographical spread of the New Territories, we expect the GMPs will focus on densely populated areas (such as town centres), tourist attraction locations and major transportation routes.

During the development of the GMPs, we organize community forums to collect the views of the public on greening. Please click the following links for the reports of the community forums:
