Introduction

Lantau is the biggest island in Hong Kong. With the development of the Hong Kong International Airport, the North Lantau New Town and strategic transport links in recent years, Lantau has tremendous development potentials. The island is, on the other hand, well recognised for its nature conservation and recreation values, with over half of the land area covered by Country Parks and much of its coastlines and uplands still in their natural state. Lantau will continue to play an important role in sustaining Hong Kong's future development. An updated overall planning framework is necessary to ensure a balanced and coordinated approach for the future development.

2. Under the steer of the Lantau Development Task Force led by the Financial Secretary, a Concept Plan for Lantau has been formulated. It sets out the overall planning concept and some proposals for individual areas as a basis for further detailed planning. The proposals in the Concept Plan are conceptual and by no means final at this stage. You are welcome to provide comments and suggestions. The Concept Plan and the proposals would be reviewed and fine-tuned, taking into account the views of the community.
