今天,本會連同四個環保團體,包括世界自然基金會香港分會、長春社、創建香港及綠色力量,舉辦記者招待會,促請政府把蒲台群島納入郊野公園,以保育蒲台獨特的生態環境。
The Society organized a press conference today together with 4 other Green Groups, including The Conservancy Association, Designing Hong Kong, Green Power and WWF - Hong Kong, to urge the government to designate Po Toi Islands as Country Park for the conservation of the unique ecology of Po Toi.

感謝各環保團體及申述人士的努力及對保護蒲台的支持,今天城規會決定縮小帶有發展威脅的「住宅(丁類)」用地,並且不接納骨灰龕的發展計劃。

Thank you for all the great effort that the Green Groups and individuals made in supporting the protection of Po Toi, the Town Planning Board today decided to reduce the area of the "Residential (Group D)" zone and reject the columbarium development.

Congratulations to Chuan for leading the Green Groups and all who helped with the presentations or who sent in objection messages by email.

I was at the Meeting and can confirm the Planning Review Board were impressed by the presentations and seriously questioned Planning Department about why they had included the R(D) (Development) zone around the Ferry Pier. Although they did not throw it out altogether (which would have been a serious embarrassment to Planning Department), they have apparently voted to reduce its size which is a significant achievement. Let's hope we can now restrict the development potential to just those houses in the current R(D) zone which are already occupied, which, in my opinion, would be a fair outcome recognising the rights of villagers and balancing that against the need for environmental protection.

I think we are also now in a position to pursue Country Park status for Po Toi, which was supported by all Green Groups and the local residents who attended the meeting in quite large numbers.

Thanks John

But it's not over yet. Now we have to start the whole process again, when they draw up the new R(D) zone.
But hopefully this will be a lot more sensible.
