About Us > Director's Message


Welcome to the Planning Department's Homepage! 

The Planning Department was established in 1990 with a mission to make Hong Kong a better place to live and work in. We are striving to build Hong Kong into a liveable, competitive and sustainable “Asia World City”.

We are responsible for the preparation of various types of town plans to guide the proper use and development of land with the objective of making Hong Kong a better place to live and work in. These plans range from development strategies for the entire territory to detailed layout plans for individual districts. With increasing co-operation with the Mainland, our Department continues to keep close contact with neighbouring cities on cross-boundary planning and development matters. The Department also provides services to the Town Planning Board.

You will find in this homepage information about our organisation, performance pledges, annual report, Hong Kong Planning Standards and Guidelines, Practice Notes, executive summaries of planning studies, schedules and reports on public consultations and other related services we provide. We have also provided you with convenient links to other planning-related homepage, including the homepage of the Town Planning Board where the latest information about its work can be obtained. Links have also been established to the Statutory Planning Portal 2 and the City Gallery.

We hope you will enjoy browsing through our web pages. Your suggestions for better improvement on our services are always welcomed.

Director of Planning
