About Us > Director's Message


Welcome to the Homepage of the Planning Department.

With a mission to make Hong Kong a better place to live and work in, the Planning Department seeks to work in partnership with our community to promote sustainable development for both our current and future generations.

Waltzing into the new decade, the Planning Department continues to devote our efforts to providing quality public services on town planning. Our colleagues are rising to the planning challenges not only posed by local factors such as double ageing and changing societal needs, but also by global factors such as climate change and COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to the vision of our territorial development strategy “Hong Kong 2030+: Towards a Planning Vision and Strategy Transcending 2030” to build Hong Kong into a liveable, competitive and sustainable “Asia’s World City”. We are also committed to preparing various types of town plans to guide the proper use and development of land, facilitate suitable development and redevelopment, and encourage community involvement and support.

You will find in this Homepage the essential information about our organization, performance pledges, annual report, Hong Kong Planning Standards and Guidelines, Practice Notes, executive summaries of planning studies, schedules and reports on public consultation, and other related services we provide. We have also provided you with convenient links to the homepage of Town Planning Board, to which the Department provides services, and other planning-related homepages including the Statutory Planning Portal 2 and the City Gallery.

I hope you will enjoy browsing through our website. Your suggestions and views are always welcome.

Director of Planning

Mr CHUNG Man-kit,
