Greening Master Plan
Greening Master Plan (GMP)
Go on the greening journey
Recognising the public's aspirations for a greener, lusher environment, the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) started to develop and implement Greening Master Plans (GMPs) for urban areas since 2004. 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 planting locations, the GMP establishes the greening themes and proposes suitable planting species.
More information of GMP can be found in the Booklet on GMP: Download PDF (23MB)
For a brief description of the GMP project background and objectives, please click here (English only).
The greening works proposed in the urban GMPs have been completed in mid 2011. In 2014, the works were extended to Sha Tin, Sai Kung, Tuen Mun and Yuen Long, and we have completed planting around 4,000 trees and 2.6 million shrubs in the abovementioned 4 districts in 2017.
We are now implementing the GMPs for Tsuen Wan, Kwai Tsing, Islands, Tai Po and North District.

Joint Effort of All
We believe that public participation not only enables us to tap into valuable local knowledge about a district but also promotes ownership of the GMPs by the local residents, which is instrumental to the smooth implementation and long-term caring of vegetation.
