Preliminary Feasibility Study on Developing the New Territories North
Brief Description of Project Scope:
The prime objective of the Study, which is jointly commissioned by CEDD and the Planning Department, is to examine the development potential of the New Territories North (NT North), strategic infrastructure provisions required for the development and the development of a modern new town there of a scale similar to that of Fanling/Sheung Shui New Town. It will formulate broad land uses and development scale of the potential development areas (PDAs) in the NT North and ascertain their preliminary development feasibility and sustainability in terms of engineering, traffic and other infrastructure capacities, environment and ecology, etc. The Study will also look into the development potential of the Fanling Golf Course together with the Fanling Lodge.
The Study area generally covers the land to the north of Hong Kong's northern hill ranges viz. Kai Kung Leng, Pak Tai To Yan and Pat Sin Leng. It is roughly bounded by San Tin Highway in the west and the North East New Territories (NENT) Landfill and its surrounding hill ranges in the east. The Study Area is about 5,300 ha.
