The Government has been planning to further develop the Tung Chung New Town (TCNT) into a comprehensively planned new town with a larger population capacity and adequate local and regional community facilities.
The proposed Tung Chung New Town Extension will cover areas on the eastern and western flanks of the existing TCNT. It will provide about 49,400 residential flats for a population of about 144,400. It will also provide about 500,000 m2 gross floor area (GFA) for office use, 327,000 m2 GFA for retail use and 50,000 m2 GFA for hotel use.
Land has been reserved in the extension area for recreational educational and community uses such as sports ground, post-secondary institution and clinic. At Tung Chung West, a channelized section of Tung Chung River at the northeast of Shek Lau Po together with the immediate upstream section up to Shek Mun Kap Road will be revitalized into a river park for recreational use with a view to enhancing and promoting water-friendly culture. Upon completion of the proposed TCNTE, the total population of Tung Chung will increase to about 268,400.

Tung Chung River Park will form part of the sustainable drainage and flood prevention system. It is intended to improve the environment, allow recreational uses, promote “water-friendly” culture and eco-education, and to allow the public to enjoy the local natural environment.
On the eastern tributary of the Tung Chung Steam, both sides of the Tung Chung Stream will be developed into a “River Park” for public recreational use, together with an education centre to promote this Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) concept.
