Land is the essential building block for the challenges faced by Hong Kong. In the spatial context of Hong Kong, Lantau commands an un-paralleled strategic location with a comprehensive air, road and rail transport network connected externally to other cities in the Greater Bay Area and the World as well as internally to the well-established core business area at Central. Creation of land for meeting housing and economic needs in this area would also allow a more balanced spatial distribution of population and jobs. The strategic transport facilities in support of the Lantau development could also help relieve the existing transport capacity constraint in Northwest New Territories as well as enhancing connections between urban areas and the New Territories.
To harness the strategic advantages and opportunities of Lantau, the Chief Executive announced in her Policy Address 2018 the Lantau Tomorrow Vision with a view to building a solid foundation for a sustainable future for Hong Kong.
We will realise this vision in the coming 20 to 30 years through the following five policy directions.
